    Though this realization of this concept was "not the cheapest" for our a little Foundation (Fundacja Historyczna Lotnictwa Polskiego or translate by google: T), I think that it was worth. These MIGs will be on air shows at whole Europe

    I want to build a display for my great uncle who was KIA with 301 Squadron and whilst looking for some Air Force badges I came across this rarity, what do the badge experts think of this one, I usually check emedals once a day and was on the site 10 hrs and it was not there, 10 hrs later it popped up and sold straight away:

    Hi Nick, that 663 looks OK to me, although I'd like to see a picture with the spinner removed. This badge is a definite rarity and sought after, and someone got themselves a steal for the asking price. I could see this badge sell retail for four or more times that price in Poland.

    I've added the pics below for future reference. Please keep in mind that links die and pics get removed so it's always best to post the pictures rather than the link.

    Here's the item description:

    Polish 663 Squadron RAF Badge - In bronze, enamels and silver, marked F.M. LORIOLI, MILANO-ROMA, extremely fine. Footnote: The 663 Squardon Aircraft Artillery (663 Dywizjon Samolotow Artylerii) called the 663rd Polish Air Observation Post Squadron, an aviation subdivision army of the Polish Armed Force in the West. The squadron was created on September 8, 1944, when pilots and ground support personnel found themselves together at the Ebola airport, thirty km southeast of Salerno, Italy. The decision on the formation of the unit was taken in late May and June 1944. Each regiment of artillery II Polish Corps were selected after two officers who were directed to Cairo for a medical examination and then to Pretoria, South Africa. In early July, a group of artillery officers began pilot training in artillery and air observation, at 62 Air School in Blomfontein, with eighteen officers completing the training on October 18. By January 8, 1945, the squadron pilots made their first flights operating in favour of the British 8th Army V Corps. In February. Squadron "A" had also collaborated with the Italian partisans. KPII, Brigadier Odzierzynskiemu Roman was subdivision subordinate to the commander of the artillery. In April 1945, the squadron saw action at the Battle of Bologna (Squadron "A" was assigned to the 3 DSK, Squadron "B" - 5 KDP and the Squadron "C" - 2 GA). The unit was disbanded on October 19, 1946

    Cheers,
