    Default Advice ON Kirkwood Polish Parachutist Badge No 349

    Hi,
    Just picked this up from a dealer, it is under gaurentee so any problems I can return.
    I am just putting it by you guys to confirm its originality.
    I do note that KAMINSKI ALEKSANDER was issued with 349 and combat wreath No 2412 ?? or is that the wrong way around and its one of the unissued SOE ones.
    Looking forward to hearing from you guys.
    thanks

    Numbers from 0330 to 0500 were not used, so everyone commonly refers to these badges as unissued.
    NIE ZAPOMNIJMY O KRESACH.

    Both badges are ok .... both as krakow1 has explained, fall in the unissued number set.
