    davekj, this is an Hungarian pilots hat badge, designed in 1929, i believe it was worn thro to 1945, and depicts a 'hunter eagle' topped by the Royal Hungarian crown device. Although a designated 'pilots' badge, it was worn by all aircrew personal wether they were qualified to fly an aircraft or not ! There was a bullion pilots breast badge, (like the RAF wings) same design as the cap badge, but the tips of the wings upturned as opposed to down on the cap badge.

    Hi

    The eagle badge belongs to a cap, it's an EM/NCO version. The other one goes to the collar. Here's a picture from my collection where you can see the cap badge in wear.
