It's a pleasure to share, James. IMHO none of this is of any use just simply sitting in boxes on my loft - it needs to be shown and appreciated.
Thanks for the ID on the badge Michal. In that case, it must be something that belonged to my dad.
And now for something *completely* different... One minature plaque, a lapel pin and a badge relating to Marshal Pilsudski along with two photos - again, all found in a box of random bits. Apologies for the cat hairs in some of the images. They are courtesy of Poppy, my lovely tortie assistant.
The miniature plaque. It's about the size of two fingernails, so the text on it is almost impossible to read. Unfortunately I don't have a jeweller's loupe...
This photo has the stamp of a press agency on the back: wydz. ilustracii prasovey P.A.T
A close-up portrait in profile
It seems that there was a trend for Pilsudski memorabilia after his death. I have a few more photos and some pamphlets, but I can't remember where I've put them...
