    It looks to be a "knock together" group of odd items thrown together.
    The Wing ... as pointed out by a couple of members, raises some concerns ... which immediately throws a bad light on the auction.
    The collar kites are bad ... which have probably been added to try to enhance the para side of the items.

    Personally there are too many "alarm bells" with the items and the way they have been grouped for sale.

    I was not able to find any record of that soldier attending a parachute course hence having a numbered parachute badge. Seems that he was a late replacement to Brigade and for some reason did not finish parachute course.

    Also as Gary J pointed out this badge should be of Gr-Tech manufacture and having four digits instead of three and a distinctive V cutout, it should not have been of Kirkwood manufacture.

    Hello you all,
    I think this paybook is an original, but I don't manage to identify to which unit was the 12th Signal Battalion...
    If you can give me solution, that would be great. I wait for your points of view, because I wanted to put the picture on the blog about General Maczek's Division, but I don't find this unit in the 1rst polish armoured division.
    Is it possible this unit was "independent" ? I suppose it in the 1rst Polish Corps.
    Thank you in advance.
