Polish Hat Eagles

Article about: In my opinion this particular cap eagle was made by G.J. Garratt Toronto. Very unique, hard to find.

    Default Help / advice please

    Hello all from newbie Leonard looking for some help / advice please.

    I've been trying to do some research into this badge but am not making very much progress apart from some references made earlier in this thread.

    Google searches don't seem to bring up very much at all apart from it being a Polish Free Eagle.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please ?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Leonard.

    Hi Leonard, and welcome to the forum. Your answer lies here - starting at post #439:

    Fellows,


    I think – this Eagle is worth posting as the next research query.
    Although not 100% associated with the WW2, it provides helpful addition to the library of knowledge that we are collectively developing here!
    It seems to be a very interesting an unusual design that most likely originated in USA / Canada in 20s-30s.

    Not sure if such relatively “crude” designe would appeal to people as an “attractive high quality patriotic jewel”. I would say most likely – used by an organisation less concerned by top-end fashion and design? But which one?

    I do not have any pictorial records showing an application – this would be helpful.

    What is interesting as well, is this particular specimen – has different signatures to “Blumenthal’s” one presented in T.Z Book.

    We have a few US / Canada based distinguished contributors to the forum – so I would think – they may have come across this variant / design and perhaps more knowledge can be shared!

    Thank you very much indeed for both your welcome and your information Tony, much appreciated.

    This does actually confirm my suspicions:-

    My Mother in Law passed away recently and the sweetheart pin was found in a box of assorted badges, brooches and pins etc. that she had kept. Mum was born in 1927 and from what we understand, she went out with a Polish pilot during, or just after the war.

    Thanks again.

    Leonard
