    Default 2nd Rakitnianski Light Horse and 18th Infantry Division Badges

    Gentlemen

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask about these badges. I think they are the

    2ND RAKITNIANSKI LIGHT HORSE REG and 18th INFANTRY DIV

    Are these correct and if so, do they date from Polskie Siły Zbrojne na Zachodzie or earlier?

    many thanks for your help

    Hi James,

    These are pre-war era badges, so I've moved the thread to the appropriate section of the forum. You’re correct with the ID of 2nd Rokitnianski Light Cavalry Regiment (2 Pułk Szwoleżerów Rokitniańskich). The other is the 18th Pomeranian Uhlan Regiment (18 Pułk Ułanów Pomorskich). Both of the examples you've shown are modern copies. Posted below are genuine non-officer grade versions of these badges.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thanks Tony, Very interesting and great learning for me. Is it fair to say that most Polish regimental badges are numbered on the reverse?

    All the best

    Hi James,

    You're most welcome. Yes, many of the regimental badges and also school and commemmorative badges were serial numbered.
