I asked this question in one of the thread, but so far I haven't gotten any answer, so here is my question.
Since the US Army required that their enlisted and officers wear the collar device "U.S" on the lapel of their shirt or Class A jacket, with their corresponding branch (i.e. Artillery, Cavalry, Infantry).
What did the Filipino enlisted and officers wear? Did they also wear the letters "U.S", or did the wear their the Artiller, Infantry, and Cavalry insignia on both collars?
If you have any pictures I would be interested in seeing the difference.
One, are you talking about the Philippine Army? If not, what a lot of folks do not know is that the Scouts were US Army and followed all US military regulations. Which includes the collar disk any service person had to wear with class A's. Only officers wore them on shirt collars..
Look at some of our reunion pictures sometimes some are dressed in class A's. It will show you what you want.
As mentioned, the PS were regular US Army units and wore standard US Army uniforms and insignia (sometimes with very minor detail differences), but suffice to say they are the same as worn in the States at the time. The great pics shown illustrate the insignia worn by PA officers. Their uniforms followed the same style as the US Army with the exception of different design on the buttons and the Philippine crest on the collars in place of US. They wore the same branch insignia in the same place as that of the regular US Army. Unfortunately original PS and PA insignia from this time is rather rare. Once in a while a cap badge or single collar insignia or DI will show up on ebay, but on the occasion when they do, they usually fetch rather high prices depending on the unit or condition. I have often wondered if there might be someone in PI who could reproduce some of this stuff for reenactors.
