And thanks William for posting the question and to JoeK for the great website! My Dad was a sergeant in the Quartermaster Corp in WWII and I never knew all that about the insignia before. I will have a good time exploring tht web site about it. Many thanks to both of you! :)

I've been known to spend hours just following a thread of info around the net.Its really quite simple..When using a major search engine like google,go to the Advanced search and try to use a unique approach.Ie: the second blank on googles advanced search is "exact match" as entered.I entered "crossed sword and key" I believe and got the hits because that was the text on the pages returned.Other arrangements of the words fail to match so are not returned.Works great for song,poetry,jokes too IF you know the exact wording of one line or phrase.
Just pick a major search engine and get to know its abilities and your're on your way.I use Google/Dogpile/Metacrawler/Mamma and others.There are also specialized engines for various topics such as music,gov't,medical/telephone etc.Find a few you like,learn to use em and bookmark em for ready availability....Have fun!
