    OK, finally a moment to wrap up with the 1st Polish Light Anti-Aircraft Artillery Regiment. First up is a photo showing a wonderful 1940 pattern BD tunic that belonged to a Sierżant Kamiński. The Exaard honourary insignia (Bevo weave type posted earlier by Stephane) is visible on the right arm just below the printed Ďcanvasí type shoulder titles:

    Offiziers Totenkopf Husaren Regiment Nr.17 Braunschweig badge or polish Death's Battery metal badge Ė coincidence by chance? I donít think so.

    Hi Chris, I agree that this and other similar skull imagery used by various units in WW1 (Polish, German and likely others) may have been influential.

    Back to the topic at hand, here's a nice image I came across from the Men-At-Arms Series #238 showing a Polish Lieutenant of the 1st Motorized Artillery Regiment in full Service Dress. Visible just below the the right side Poland shoulder title is the "Death's Battery" insignia. The caption states the location and date as "Breda, Netherlands - February 1945"

    ... The 17th Duke of Cambridge's Own Lancers (nicknamed "Death or Glory Boys") of the British Army adopted the "skull" badge in 1795 which today is still worn by The Queen's Royal Lancers

    .....In 1922 the 17th was amalgamated with the 21st Lancers (Empress of India's) to form the 17th/21st Lancers. This regiment was amalgamated with the 16th/5th Queen's Royal Lancers in 1993 to form the Queen's Royal Lancers a serving armoured regiment today based in Catterick, England.

    I donít mean Offiziers Totenkopf Husaren Regiment Nr.17 Braunschweig badge and polish Death's Battery metal badge are similar or first had influence for otherís origin. These are exactly the same badge. Made by the same die (matrix) in some german factory or workshop.

    Chris, Is the badge that you pictured in your post #15 attributed to the Offiziers Totenkopf Husaren Regiment Nr.17 Braunschweig?
