Some Symbols More Obvious that Others

It often offers clarity of message, and clarity of purpose. The Badge of the long disbanded British Berlin Infantry Brigade is quite clear: we are surrounded, represented by a red ring. It should come as no surprise that they were dominated by paratroopers, who are used to the idea of being deep in hostile lands.

I don’t think there has ever been a time when a population had as much affinity with those who were technically a protector and an occupier than when it comes to this idea. Collectively, they were captives. Considering their possible fate based on what surrounded them, in many ways, they were all rebels too.
