Germany: Russian Liberation Army armshield, circa 1943-45: machine embroidered version, produced on denim base; in excellent, preserved condition with some glue spots & paper fragments from display-mounting. Worn by Russian volunteers serving in the ROA ("Ruskaya Osvoditelnaya Armya") led by former Soviet General Andrey Andreyvich Vlasov. This force included navy and airforce elements and numbered up to 800,000 men at its height, and uniquely among collaborationist forces did not adopt anti-Semitism in its manifesto.
