    After the posting in the Badges thread concerning the 303 Sqdn. badge manufacturers, I thought it might be an idea to create a sticky reference thread concerning Maker marks and Spinners.

    Ok .. from Konrad's thread, the image of the "A.F" mark, as well as the "K&S" mark found on original 303 Sqdn. Badges.


    "A.F" = Arthur Fenwick Ltd. Vyse St, Birmingham (Thanks to Jacek for tracking this one down !)
    "K&S" = Kirkwood and Sons.
