  1. now for the proficiency badges not described in Peterson's book Shooting Badges will follow. Army Proficiency Badges not in Peterson.pdf
  2. Part 2. Proficiency Badges not included in Peterson to follow. Army Proficiency Badges Material Part 2.pdf
  3. Army Proficiency Badges are many and varied, and there doesn't seem to be a definitive catalogue of them. So I've started my attempts using Peterson's examples, and I'm attaching a pdf document which includes the material I've found. A lot more to come!! Note that I have not included Sharpshooter badges - they'll need a separate sheet. Army Proficiency Badges Material.pdf
  4. The badges shown in the attached are not part of the 9 standard 1st 2nd and 3rd class Technical Merit, Long Service, Good Conduct Badges but these are issued by Navy Arsenals Miscellaneous Arsenal Badges.pdf
  5. Thank you Nick, I have hundreds of documents but that's all for arsenals. I do not have the lovely 30 year Kure badge or the 10 year one without enamel but I do have the 5 year badge that I'll post soon with a few other associated items.
  6. Here's a pdf document which contains photographs and translations of all the Arsenal documents I own. Please note that because I have no knowledge of the Japanese/Chinese languages my translations are not complete. Help would be appreciated. Also, I can extract text from the pdf if anyone would like the material. I do have a few Arsenal badges which are not honorary badges. I'll post these later. Arsenal Honorary Badge Documents.pdf
