Three insignia patches
Cloth unit insignia patches were initially used to mark equipment or luggage, but at the end of the war they began to spontaneously appear on uniforms. This occurred largely, though not exclusively, after the armistice. Some Engineer unit insignia examples here are (left to right): Rail and Bridge Engineers; 40th Engineer Regiment (Camouflage); 14th Engineer Regiment (Railroads).
