    Hi There

    They all are WWII era some were used post war as the units were still active.

    The bottom 2 are 99th Infantry Division (OR) also known as checkboard due to the white/Blue design.

    The ADC is Alaskan Defence Command unauthorized and approved for local wear. There are many variations of this design.

    The authorized SSI is the Polar Bear Head ,1943 Alaskan Defence Command then renamed Alaskan Department 1943-1947.

    The 99th is interesting because it is a manufacturers variation , the authorized design is below for comparison.
