    Default RAF Blazer Badges, Great collection, are they real?

    Ok so I was given this collection piece from a family member and I'm wondering if this stuff is even real because I know these type of items are susceptible to reproductions. Either way it's a neat piece but I'd like to know. I'm going to attach a link because it's a huge image that shows all of the detail of the badges. let me know, thanks!

    Good collection of badges.

    As far as I am aware blazer badges are private purchase items - purchased by veterans and worn on occasions such as Remembrance Day.

    By implication therefore they are genuine.

    I will let someone more knowledgeable comment on the wings and other badges.

    Regards

    As Richie says the blazer badges are fine. No such thing as a copy as they are not issue items. But the wings, rank insignia, shoulder titles, etc are repro.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Some of these blazer badges are technically REPRO too because they were probably all made recently and blazer badges with the King's crown have been lergely irrelevant since 1953 The RFC blazer badge with the Queen's crown on it is a joke. RFC died in 1918...QE2 came to the throne in 1953.
