    Hi Leeb, and welcome to the forum. Your friend is correct. You have a WW2 era Polish hat badge that was intended for wear on FS caps and berets. I’ll relocate your thread to the appropriate section of the forum.

    Your badge was made by London based firm J.R . Gaunt. The design is a patterned after pre-WW2 hat badges intended for the polish equivalent of the FS cap, the “furazerka”, aka side, wedge, or forage caps.

    These and other Polish WW2 era hat eagle badges are discussed in depth here:

    Cheers,
    Tony
