Polish Hat Eagles

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

    Fellows,

    I have been lucky to take this picture recently at Sikorski's Museum - it pleases in context this specific variant of the "Palestinian Simplified" Eagle.

    quote : It is velvet. This is in keeping with pre-war hat band specifications for rogatywki used in all of the artillery branches (dark green). Velvet hat bands were also used for Engineers, Signals, and Medical Service. All other branches including infantry blue were regular wool fabric.

    You learn something new everyday, thanks for info.

    Fellows,

    One more step (and I think very relevant) - in understanding various interesting variants of Polish Eagles. At Sikorski's Museum - i have come across this very unusual Gaunt - at the first look - a classic bigger version with less common fastening - 2 vertical "blades".

    However, upon close examination the very unusual feature can be noticed - Gaunt's markings under the lower blade.
    I have seen - a number of Gaunt with "blades" - but this is first one with markings - clearly super unusual / rare.

    It is understood that Guan used marking early in the war and then discontinued. This may suggest that variant with "blades" emerged very early.

    Has any of you seen / got a similar one?
