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,

    One more step - to understand the subject matter!

    Spink "symmetric" variant - rare itself. This one, however, is even more "refined" due to the very unusual fixing.
    2 vertical blades - located in 2 points of reverse. More common variant has also 2 vertical blades - but attached in 1 point (centrally, in the middle of reverse).

    Having seen a number of Sipink's Eagles (both symmetrical and non-symmetrical ones) - I personally think- this variant is mega rare!

    Perhaps any of you has better pictures of this variant?

    And - just to complete, couple of pictures - "Symetric" Spink - in its best!

    Very nice view of -again a rare variant!

    Have a question to the attached photographs; is it common that Polish officers wearing US officer collar insigna on their BD?

    Kind regards,

    I believe on 17th of December 1943 Patton visited the Anders II Army in Faqus in Egypt. There was a movie / documentary taken at the day and can be seen under the following link.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hz5r18xxEAs

    Answering to your question – I think this particular swap was one-off and there are not (as far as I am aware) examples of Polish officers wearing US – collar insignia. However, there is a number of well documented instances where Polish Eagles and patches were used by foreign liaison officers and member of Women’s Auxiliaries formations in the UK.

    Just to complete – re this particular swap - in fact – if I interpret the pictures kept at the Sikorski’s Institute in London correctly, – Gen Anders must have taken off the US collar and the arm patch shortly thereafter and actually exchanged a “British Side Cap” for a “Beret Cap” with Gaunt of London made Eagle (the beret can be seen at the Sikorski’s)

    Many thanx for the clear answer! And for the link to the documentary (also a nice view to see the use of the 1903 pattern bandoleer for the lee enfield rifle!).

    Looks indeed that the exchance, of collar and shoulder sleeve insigna, was a set-up for the documentary.

    Here's an interesting eagle, recent acquisition to the T.Budny collection. Thought to be 1939/40 French made eagle for helmet application. Shown next to standard wz.39 for scale reference. Can't recall ever seeing one of these before.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Artur, the eagle appears to have undergone a harsh cleaning and patination process. Here's one that has aged more naturally.
