Polish Hat Eagles

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

    I second that - nice collection Andrzej

    My favourite of these types is the Scully, post #1229. Partly because of the beautiful high quality stamping these are known for, and partly because of the Canadian pedigree!

    Fellows,

    Next small research project one more time - see attached.

    I have no idea at the moment what the context of this Eagle may be - civil organisation, association with military / POWs or just a hand made item for tourists, or perhaps "one off" personal item.
    Eagle itself of a very interesting design - slight resemblance of pre-ww1 pattern(s).

    Dimensions c10x7cm - material some sort of artificial substance.

    Any suggestions welcome!

    Fellows,

    I think this particular find – is well worth sharing with You - as it materially extends the knowledge re WW2 Polish Helmets and Eagles.

    Actually – it looks like at the early stage of its existence some small units of the Polish Army in the UK used the Adrian’s Helmets with the “White Painted Eagle”. I do not think that this fact is well known, neither i know the publication that features such confirmation.

    I have come across – very relevant pictures at Sikorski featuring the crew of the Polish Armoured Train nr 4 that was stationed in Dunfermline, Scotland. Pictures had been taken on 8.11.1940.

    I have never seen such helmet, and easily conclusion can be made that, this “UK Adrian” actually may be one of the rarest Polish WW2 helmets.

    I am publishing this find – realising the risk that most likely (and sadly!!!), some “clever folks” will soon find “an authentic” one and offer on the market as the “find of lifetime”.
    I would say that probability that an authentic one survived - is zero!

    Hello Wadowicznic,

    I just thought that you might also like to see the following colour photograph of President Raczkiewicz visiting Dunfermline on the 8th November 1940.

    Fellows,

    This was an interesting set - 2 Eagles we have discussed / IDed before - with a characteristic "dot".
    I would say - we can officially add this variant to "must have" list.

    Fellows,

    I am happy to report an anther mega relevant find – I think!.

    This actually may be one of the rarest WW2 Polish Navy related Eagles.

    Archives of Sikorski’s include a small set of pictures taken at the “Polish Navy School” at Makindu in (at that time) British Eastern Africa. location is known to house one the camps for displaced persons / Polish refuges following evacuation from CCCP - many locations across Africa were used.

    Pictures are dated - 14 VI 1944, Makindu.

    In terms of the Eagle. Although the pictures are not definitive – it looks (after enlarging) that the actual shape / size of the Eagle are not similar to the known WW2 variants made in the UK.

    Clearly, no definitive conclusion as of yet – until the actual specimen is found – but, I would say that we looking at a real rarity - "unidentified variant" here!
