Armshield patch of the Russian Liberation Army, 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.
