    . . . Can you tell what kind of eagle is in the last posts please?

    (O yeah maybe a strange question, but can you also tell me where the wz. stand for in the mention of wz.39 please?
    Hello Pieter, this particular eagle was used in the 2nd Corps, as evidenced in the photo Artur posted, and can be included in the wz.39 category. The maker of this eagle remains unknown.

    wz. is the abbreviation for wzr which means model or type. The Model 1939 or Type 1939 designation is generally applied to the full size hat eagle badges used by the exiled armed forces, with size and design more or less based on the first of these eagles produced by French maker Alavoine in 1939/40.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Pieter,

    The "Brass Eagle" (as i call it), as of today, has not yet been properly IDed - no knowledge of the manufacturer (likely Mid-East), place of introduction (likely before 1943) - unfortunately.
    There is however, pictorial evidence locating the Eagle in 1944+ and in the context of Polish Commando units (both the Independent Commando Company (part of 10th UK Commando) and 2nd Motorised Commando Regiment. However, again this is not the only Eagle used in those units.
    Overall, i would say this Brass Eagle is very hard to find, especially in a good condition.


    "1939 Eagle" - relates to an iconic design that emerged in France by the end of 1939, by manufacturer called "Aloviane" (sorry for spelling - not 100% sure). All the documents re that order / proposal are kept at Sikorski's Institute in London

    Very relevant find - I think!
    Looks like Mid-East based manufacturer(s) exploited the opportunity well and adjusted effectively to various pockets of demand!

    Fellows,
    One more steps in understanding the usage / application of Polish Eagles.

    First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (Princess Royal's Volunteer Corps) (FANY (PRVC) had proved its value, commitment and a real contribution to the good cause during the both world's wars.

    Interestingly one of the Eagles appears to be a pre-war pattern.

    Fellows,
    I am glad to present an another, hope relevant, find taking us further in understanding Polish Eagles of WW2.

    Very interesting photo capturing an event - presentation of Ambulances to members of Polish Armed Forces - by Polish Red Cross (judging from PCK signs) . Unfortunately, date and context are unknown - Pasis?

    However, what is very intriguing is an unusual and "illegal" application of Eagles by members of Military - Eagles are also used as breast badges.

    This is the first time i see such an application - in the context of Polish Army in France 39/40.
