    Thanks Dom. It came with my big haul of badges at the weekend. Sadly it was missing the backing plate. But I have to check the 30 odd badges, as many I think many have had the plates mixed up as some do not fit correctly.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes unfortunately often the case with the Soviet badges .The excellent shooter is a variant of the Pobeda factory .

    Putin was of course ex KGB.
