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 think - because picture is part of the set that i associated with 318 SQ -that was stationed for some time in Mid-East.

    Incredible find-congratulations. Both Eagle and Hat are museum quality finds. Do you know the provenience? This would help to "contextualise" this rare Eagle.

    Fellows,
    I am v-happy to report an interesting find - a very unusual casted PAF Eagle -100% period item.

    I have seen many "casted " Eagle over years - but this one is very unusual - given material used, which is aluminium. Fastening, also very unusual.

    Perhaps any of you has second specimen - so we can "positively" ID this variant.

    Good day folks

    Is this a WW2 era PAF Eagle? Nice gilt highlights, 3 rear fixings and mounted on what looks like black serge over a buckram type of material.

    It has many of the characteristics of a Gaunt made eagle.

    Many thanks for your comments.

    James,
    I must have seen this particular one before – but do not remember where / when!?
    Very characteristic reverse – with black canvas / cover removed. I think, It must have been - one of the auctions couple years ago -somebody may have some records

    It is ww2 pattern - in fact made by Gaunt (on some specimens an orginal label can be found). Very rare eagle!.
    This one appears genuine, but inspection needed to be 100% sure.

    Fellows,
    Finally have managed to obtain high quality picture of this very interesting and rare Eagle (previously posted not that good!). Most likely made in Mid-east around 1944.

    Pictorial records suggest that this pattern was used widely by the members of the 2nd Motorised Commando Battalion.
