Looks like a decent brass RAF cap badge, Kings crown design, issued during WWII and upto early 1953 after which the Queens crown surmounted the laurels.
The casting doesnt look very crisp on this one to me looks like a restike but i may be wrong ?
Were they wearing Oxy badges in WWII?
Not sure of what you mean by Oxy?
This is a standard brass metal cap badge.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
The other thing to note is that this is an OR's (other) ranks badge for personell upto and including Flight Sergeant. The officers badge (Warrant Officer upwards) is completely different.
I hope this helps.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
Sorry Ade, I meant oxidised finish. RAAF badges were usually oxidised finish during the war, I was not sure about RAF.
Thank you all for the reply , I have another badges I purchased from the same source I'm posting in another thread for review.
