    I would say it is a good luck charm, most likely Victorian in date and either British or US in origin. Not German or Third Reich for sure. Remember that the swatika was a popular symbol until the Nazis got hold of it. There is of course a chance it got carried by someone in WW2, but I am pretty certain it was made many years before.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thanks ade i had thought that may be the case, but with the crash and pow's id hoped it was military.
