    There was supposedly a wartime producer of printed insignia of this type by the name of J. Snook located in Nottingham. I have seen several example of what are claimed to be genuine period insignia for the Polish 2nd Corps, although I have yet to encounter any of these insignia applied to a uniform. Posted below are some examples.

    I am not saying this 1st Armoured Div isnignia is a Snook product, although there are some distinct similarities.

    Regards,

    Pete,

    I’ll also add that if you’re looking for known genuine examples of the 1st Armoured Division “squirrel” (as some have mistakenly called this image of a winged hussar’s helmet) several variants are posted below.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Not to hijack this thread, but while on the topic of the 1st Armoured Div 'wiewiorka', has anyone ever seen of these with the grey backing? Never seen anything comparable and not sure what to make of it. The stitching looks period correct, and it's the stitching that is often the giveaway with the modern copies.

    Fantasy? Legit?
