Here is an interesting variation of the WW2 Torpedo-Boat badge. This one is different in that it has a gold frosted finish with red and blue enamel. This badge has a fast torpedo boat in the center of the badge insted of a seahorse over the letter "V". The crown is red and there is blue enamel lettering in the circle that reads "MOMENTO AUDERE SEMPER". Does anyone know of this badge ?

Most likely not. Romania joined WWI in 1916, not 1914. Maybe Serbian?

That is correct. However, the Adrian style helmet made me think of a possible link to Rumania. Did Serbs soldiers wear the same type of helmet?

This could be a WW1 italian torpedo boat badge. Italian torpedo boats were called MAS that stands for "Motoscafo Anti Silurante", the italian poet and war volunteer and hero Gabriele D'Annunzio gave the name MAS a new meaning in latin: "Memento Audere Semper", "Remember to Always Dare".
Italian MAS torpedo boats were responsable for many succesfull sinkings of Austro-Hungarian ships in the Adriatic, among them the battleship Szent Istvan.

Can anyone identify this WW2 uniform ? He is a Second Lieutenant and wears the model
1941 tunic with war time plastic buttons. He also wears a Boy Scout leaders military badge. What I have not been able to identify is that he wears a visor cap badge and colar patches with a large white scriptive "A" on them. Over the right pocket, there is a very unique patch that looks like it is in three colors sewn on wool. The patch looks like a gunsight or target. Does anyone know what this insignia is or what kind of army uniform he is wearing ?

The drawing at right reminds me of the logo often seen on wartime propapanda pictures, namely two P's, one reversed, back-to-back to a regular P, over several semi circles.
Could this officer be a member of the Royal Rumnaian Army's propaganda company?

Hi Denes,

Yes, the Serbs did get Adrian helmets, but only after their army was rebuilt by the Allies on the Salonika Front over 1916-18.

Cheers,

Sid.

Hi Denes,

I see your point. It is reminiscent of the SMP logo found on many official Romanian photos from WWII.

Could the "A" be something to do with Antonescu's bodyguard battalion?

Cheers,

Sid.
