I know NW Europe the Rangers wore the Diamond.What shoulder insignia did the 1st,3rd and 4th wear in the Med Theatre. I have no idea what the 6th wore in the Pacific. I know some of the Rangers who were re-asigned to the Force wore their Battalion flash over the Spearhead, there are a few photos of this.
Got anything else on this for me?

Hello mate,

No doubt i will be quickly corrected if i'm wrong (and b*llocked by my Lt too!) but i am certain that with the exception of the 2nd & 5th Rangers ALL the other battalions wore the relivent scroll as they did not have the diamond insignia - indeed, i think i'm also right in saying that even the 2nd & 5th changed to the scroll very late in the war/early post-war, but some "old-sweat's" kept their diamonds to show their "length of service".

Hope this helps! :wink:

Regard's - Minty.
