I wish I had even the slightest idea. I feel like a dummy. I'll be back for the answer! Happy WW!

Military patch of some sort but other than that I am clueless as well as wordless!

EHT said...

It's not a military patch. What else could it be?

This one has me stumped.

Is it a road sign?

The colors remind me of the Swiss Guard.

EHT said...

Nope....not a road sign.

Here's a hint....my post involves the history of a name and this object at one time represented someone's name.

What could this object be?

I spent 8 hours at a brain-numbing (no, brain-killing) in-service. And I can't think any longer! Please tell us!

EHT said...

Those in-services are ridiculous. The only thing that helps me to cope is if I come away with at least one thing I can use it's a good day. It happens rarely. Most of the info is a rehash/remix of previous things.....many that I already do.

I will try to put up my explanation today or tomorrow.

I have been racking my brain to figure this one. It must be an heraldic device for someone. The three stars caught my attention and led me on a wild goose chase down the route of Columbus (3 ships on first voyage). The stripes reminded me of the House of Aragon's, so I tried some Spanish explorers. Then I went English with those connected to the Jamestown Settlement (three ships), but no luck. Thanks for the exercise.

Hi Keith...I hope you learned something on your "expedition." The image is a coat of arms and it involves the naming of America. Check out the link to my explanation in this post.
