Quote from: Smithsonia on February 08, 2011, 07:03:22 AMI've written about the WW2 Civil Defense history and DNA in our badges. Here's the Tri-prop in its original form with the Civil Defense brother badges laid out in order. http://forum.teamcap.org/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=2932&cat=2055There was once a pantheon of similar associations. This board contains samples of Civil Defense duties identified by different badging that could be ordered from the Robbins Company which was the Vanguard back in the day. You'll notice we are the last brother standing. Time has consumed the rest of our childhood family. You can trace our linage of the white triangle, trip prop, blue circle, and iconic style. My grandfather was an air raid warden in WW2. I remember his arm band, white helmet and tin can flashlight. He wore these items into the 50s and was often taken out to respond to tornadoes as he lived in Kansas. thanks to the TeamCap site for posting the Robbin Company Samples.
Quote from: professorfalken on July 29, 2011, 10:47:11 PMHave you found anything in your research explaining where the triangle came about as a symbol of civilians/civil defense/civil air patrol? Even today, DoD uses a triangle on their civilian service awards, and the triangle is used by the Geneva Convention to identify civilians. I'm wondering if the use of the triangle to represent civilians originated with WWII civil defense, or if there was something beforehand which caused it to be adopted for WWII CD use?Thanks,1LT Harold Damron, CAP
