The first shield was plastic for infantry combat uniforms. This was fastened by hooks.

This thick shield was used on the older blue jacket and continued use on the nylon M95 jacket. It was excellent quality and fastened by velcro. The fourth is fabric for the M95 uniform (black shirt like NYPD). The fifth is fabric for the Mounted Police. The sixth for the motorized police. All of these shields were used on the left arm. On the right arm was the circle with the rooster inside.
