    Capt. Lorys on page XLV in materialy shows assignment of numbers on Par. badges, MON has four blocks of numbers reserved, one of them from 4620 to 4710, the badge in question # is 4667.
    Piotr Witkowski in a book "Polskie Jednostki Powietrzno-Desantowe na Zachodzie shows pictures of patek from 1SBS, none have a dark red border.
    He shows a picture of one belonging to RS Sunday who also writes on this forum and it has dark red border and it says that it is one belonging to Sam. Komp. Grenadierow. Also the paper backing on these does not glow, and the badge has a die mark, the picture does not do it justice.
    All the rest of info that I quoted is in the same book.
    Another source is Jedrzej Tucholski "Spadochroniarze" where he has a paragraph about Poles jumping in France , also SPP has some material but some missions are still secret. They supposedly did one in Germany after 05/06/1945 against the soviets.
    There were two groups in the Company: one to jump in France, one to be used in Germany, hence the Foreign Legion deserters(french speakers) and the Wehrmacht. They were to operate in teams of five. Also they carried some cool weapons, wore US uniforms and a patch that is most sought after today: wings with SF in the middle. (Special Force). They trained in Fort William, Scotland SOE facility.

    The make up of the beret is wrong for a "Polish" Gelfer ...
    More likely a QARANC or re-dyed RAF ..

    Hello!

    Sorry but in my opinion this znak spadochronowy is nice fake. I don't like reverse side, numeral font and column (słupek, i don't how to say it in english )

    Best Regards

    Here is a scan of the owner of badge # 0968. One can see the half of the badge in this picture and the cutout which looks more like a V.Click image for larger version.
