ARTIFACT: This is a rare circa 1944 Number IDed Heaquarters Z Force badge. The organization, dubbed the "Zebra Force." By United States advisors, was formed to train 30 Chinese Divisions in hopes of driving the steadily progressing army of the Japanese. The Z Force was the second push for a Thirty Division plan, coming after the Y Force, which the militaries took more precedence over the Z Force, which fell behind more prioritized Y force as time went on.
