    Hi there, was recommended to ask on here from someone at rootstec London.

    This badge was given to me by my grandmother a number of years ago, she got it from her brother.

    I have been trying to find out what it is for the last few years but haven't found anything, can anyone help please. IMG_20191106_093014~2.jpg

    Crossed cannon and the torch of liberty suggests US Army - with the wings possibly USAAF

    The Torch was/is used in the US Army as a symbol of communication, by the Signals Corps. May they be US Airborne Signals or similar ?

    But the US Army used the crossed cannon with the torch - the latter bei8ng called the torch of liberty - just as the statue holds one.

    Just been doing some digging on ancestry and I now know he was born in 1950 so too late for ww1 or ww2.

    Must have been serving in the 70-80s ish. Don't know if that helps but thought I'd make a note of it.
