Royal Guard Regiment from the 1930's. Color indicates Air Force Blue and Anti-Aircraft Black. I know that there existed an Air Force Guard Regiment in Cluj during the 1930's. However, not much is written about this unit. I have photos of an officer from this regiment. This particular group of insignia has the neck color patch in divided 2 colors with the other half in black for Anti-Aircraft Artillery. Can anyone shed additional information about this group of insignia and of the Regiment :?:

A very large shoulder sleeve patch in bullion for a Munitions transportation snow sled driver for the 2nd Artillery Regiment. The sled looks like it has boxes behind the driver for carrying artillery shells. I have photographs of WW1 and WW2 soldiers wearing shoulder sleeve patches. However, I beleive that this type of insignia, shoulder sleeve patches, are extremely rare and perhaps not officially authorized. This patch is unknown to me and looks to have been made in WW1 or the 1920's. I hope this guy got hazardous pay.

Can any one identify this badge :?: I have seen this badge with and without crown at the top. The letter are "S.R.R." I think that it may be for an NCO School. Silver badge with very nice enamel. Circa 1930's.

Here is another badge that is unknown to me. School for Ensigns or Lieutenants :?: Note the star and chevron insignia on the badge. This is a very early made pin back badge. Possibly of WW1-1920's mfg.

There are 5 variations that I know of.
Blue enamel gold gilt
Blue enamel silver
Gold gilt with thin blue enamel border (Not shown here)
Silver with thin blue enamel border
Silver minuture badge applied over a silver Order of Ferdinand.
Same size as these badges. (Not shown here. Was this piece
reserved for wear by members of the Royal Family) :?:
I do not know why they had so many variations of badges or what
the classifications of the badges are for. Anyone know :?:

Here are the other 2 badges that I describe previously.
The one in all silver with many silver hallmarks and has a miniture badge applied over the Ferdinand cross. Very nicely made Jeweler piece made by Joseph Resch Fiul Bucharest. Was this piece reserved for Royal members ?????

Unknown patch. Very large with bullion wire embroidery.
At the top are the letters "F.R.BO.X." and the date "1926"
Can anyone identify this piece ? Unsual center shield.

I wonder if it isn't in fact "F.R.BOX" which might stand for Federaţia Română de Box (Romanian Boxing Federation). Even today they use the same acronym in the address of their website: www.frbox.ro (even though it does not seem to work).

Interesting WW2 helmet painted black with an unusual skull and cross bones insignia. Any one have an idea who wore this helmet and what this insignia is for ?
