It looks like a ''S'' shield, which in my reference book is quoted as being unknown but others may have a different opinion, there's one in the Goodapple book described as being taken from a black uniformed prisoner by a GI, two possible explanations are Fascist paramilitary,or factory guards unit??????
I initially thought it was the Dutch SS Rune...but now I see the backgrounds are actually reversed...
These men are with the Sonderdienst im Generalgouvernement; an internal security formation operating in occupied Poland. Also (barely) visible is the special sleeve badge for that organization.
Photos of the Sonderdienst are relatively rare and relics of it even more so. For a little more, see:
Axis History Forum • Female Sonderdienst?
You will also find some rather good photographs of Sonderdienst personnel if you do a search for "Sonderdienstu" at the Polish National Archives:

Very interesting pic.
Hi mate, I can't send them either. I'm in the twilight zone at the moment lol... It's because my pink wore off a few days ago, I'll fix it soon. Shoot me an email if you want
Thank you very much for your assistance in identifying the decal.
Cool pic, and the best thing is I've learnt something new to boot.
