WW 2 beret. I am unable to identify this patch and unit. Patch has a red cross on it with the letters " S.M.M.B."

SMMB = Spitalul Militar Municipal Bucuresti (Mnicipal Military Hospital Bucharest). But this is only a hunch, not a sure thing.

Can any one identify this sword ? It looks to be a court or ministry style sword with yellow handle, blade is Solingen with etch King Carol 2 cyphers. It has a unique insignia on the front of the guard. A wreath with the letters "A.R." Who or what is AR ?

It seems to be a Masonic ceremonial sword as it has the typical symbols: the triangle and the compasses. The letters “AR” could be the initials of the Masonic lodge, of the rank inside the lodge or of the owner.

I do not beleive this to be Masonic. There is no triangle or compass here. It is simply a scriptive cypher letters of "A.R." in a wreath. The sword is of the highest manufatured quality from Solingen Germany with the new cypher version of King Carol on the blade. Circa late 1930's.

The two pictures are very small; some bigger ones would help, and in the picture with wreath is very hard to distinguish the exact shape of the star or letters.

I know this is not a romanian Item, but nobody I asked seems to know what it is, so i thought I might give it a shot here as well:
Some time ago, a friend of mine form the US gave me this strange bandoleer since he had heard I collect militaria and he had no acutual use for it. He himself had found it at a yard sale, and bought if for about $5.

Anyway, here it is:
(IMG:http://img103.imageshack.us/img103/3071/banduliera12yl.jpg)

The buttons are made of hard wood, and look brand new, and while there is a sign of light wear in the fabric, especially around bukles, overall, the thing is in great shape.

(IMG:http://img103.imageshack.us/img103/5074/banduliera25vb.jpg)

The lower part of the back side, as well as the inside of the pockets are made from a kind of rubbery membrane. The rest seems to be some kind of cotton fabric, not unlike that seen in american WW2 bandoleers.

(IMG:http://img103.imageshack.us/img103/599/banduliera31xc.jpg)
I think this might be a civillian bandoleer, but there are some strange, military style markings on it - first, a "5" and "7", stamped in blue ink on the inside of the rightmost pocket. The pockets are just wide enough to allow two 5 round 30-06 strippers to be placed side by side, but at 12cm, they seem abnormally deep. On the inside of each pocket flap, there number "524" is stenciled in white paint.

(IMG:http://img103.imageshack.us/img103/9671/banduliera42id.jpg)
Also on the outside of the rightmost pocket, there is another, almost unreadable number. I belive it to be "523(8?, 9?)0000".

So, any ideas what this might be?
