Insigne - Insigne is a site for collectors of militaria insignia. It is a free site: you will not be asked to join an organization; you will not encounter material that is available to "members only"; The owner, Les Huges, has collected military insignia for 25 years. Les began casting what he learned into magazine articles, an activity that added to my enjoyment of the hobby. What you will find on this site are several of those articles, which present some of the insignia and information I gleaned during years of contacts with veterans of World War II. You will also find material that deals with the hobby of insignia collecting in general and, especially, with the problem of reproduction and fake insignia, a subject that many fear to deal with publicly except in generalities. If you find something in this site that instructs or entertains, it will have served its purpose.
