    What is the significance of the "swallow" type bird on what looks like felt backing that is placed inside the wreath?
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nor me. Were any Polish paras seconded to 2PolCorps units? The swallow type bird looks very similar in design to one of the beret badges of a 2PolCorps unit whose identity I can't recall at the moment?
