Walloon volunteer or Rex sleeve shield
I'm very interested in this burgundy cross sleeve shield.
Do you think it's a variant of the tricolored Légion Wallonie sleeve shield?
Or was this worn by belgian rexists, in Belgium?
I remember having seen some pictures with men worning Luftwaffe Fliegerbluse with Burgundy cross insigna.
Thanks a lot!

Re: Walloon volunteer or Rex sleeve shield
Your shield differs in several places from those I know are originals. We have yet to discover the true purpose of these insignia. They may have been a German made pattern that was never issued out or, perhaps, never adopted.
I am seeking Golden Party Badge # 77578, Luftwaffe blue summerweight flight pants, used Geschwader Immelmann officer's cuff title.
