    Hi Kevin,

    Top left is the Tobruk commemorative badge issued to members of the Independent Carpathian Rifles Brigade . To its right is a hat eagle made by Italian firm F.M Lorioli, Milano for the Polish 2nd Corps. Just below these is another hat eagle, this one Swiss made by Huguenin for the 2nd Rifles Division interned in Swizterland after a valiant effort during the French Campaign of 1940. At the bottom is either 1st Grenadiers Division or 1st Grenadiers Brigade badge, depending on the presence of a laurel wreath in the shield. I can’t quite discern this in the small picture provided. If there’s no wreath then it is a “non combat” Brigade version. Hope that helps!

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hi Kevin - value depends on authenticity, condition and completeness. Would need better pics showing the reverse. Thanks for flipping the pic for us Ade. My quick was reply to Kevin was the best I could do from my computer at work!

    Cheers,
