    Greetings and welcome to the forum. And thanks for becoming a club member

    You have some very desirable items in your collection. I see a focus developing on the Polish forces stationed in France and also on the early post war Polish guard units. One small thing I need to mention though is that the badge with the dragon and red and white checkerboard directly below the European Confederation for Former Combatants Cross is not Polish. It is actually that of the 1st Vietnamese Dragoon Regiment. This badge was erroneously included in a well known and influential Polish badge and decoration catalogue published 30 years ago. Don't feel bad though as I and many others were led to believe at one time that this was a badge issued to the Polish Air Force in France 1940. In fact, it was on this forum that I learned otherwise. Once again, welcome aboard and thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Thank you, Tony.
    I'll live it like it is so other members (or Vietnam Veterans) can benefit from this knowledge.

    Next is coming my Great Britain's display.
