    Hi Artur , thank you for the info, but you think the badges i posted are original ?
    The 7 lancer Lubelski was made in by PICCHIANI & BARLACCHI FIRENZE in Italy and he second has a nut of G sosnowski.
    ( you showed the nut my by Knedler ) i was wondering if Sosnowski made such a badges or the nut may be from some other badge ?

    Please let me know

    Breast and collar badges of 7th Lubelski Lancers Regiment are original. P&B maker were sole producers of this badge.

    Badge of 6th Air Force Regiment is fake. Sosnowski never made those badges. Knedler was the only one maker.

    Agreed with Simon’s prior post about the 7th Lancers badge and pennons. Both are genuine. Although I would not be so quick to toss the 6th Air Force Regiment into the bin. This one bears all of the characteristics of a badge produced early in WW2 as a replacement for Polish pilots newly arrived on British soil. These badges, produced in the workshops by Polish ground crews, have been discussed previously on this forum and are widely considered and collected as legitimate. The Sosnowski marked spinner, while incorrect for air force badges, was one of the ones produced for the “warsztatowki” badges. I’m away from my archives at the moment, but will strive to post some images later.

    Regards,
    Tony
