    Hi Mattm1970,

    If the ribbon Bars are correct the 1939-1945 Star Ribbon with Rosette denotes the Bar "Battle of Britain"

    Or was it sewn onto the wrong ribbon.

    A very interesting link

    J. R. Gaunt & Son, Ltd. - Manufacturer - Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

    The pictures attached seem to add arguments supporting the hypothesis that some of the Early Guant Air Force Badges had the “vertical Scare / Crack” across the Eagle.
    We have discussed this subject on the forum

    I think this is relevant finding

    Ive always liked the Polish militaria but almost never see any for sale. I think some of their stuff is just as nice, or better looking then some of their German counterparts. If anyone has any leads on where I can start buying Polish Mil at? I would greatly appreciate knowing so. I have a neighbor in my Apartment complex who was in the Polish military in WWII and would love to see if I can find his unit badge. He was in either an Armored or a Cavalry unit-I cant remember which off hand?

    Anyway, if anyone has any good buying leads for Polish stuff? please let me know by PM as I have difficult times refinding great threads of interest.

    Take care and best regards--C.

    Thanks for posting It is superb quality...who was the German maker?

    Hi
    This badge was made by Steinhauer – who had made and number of regimental badges for units of 1 Polish Armoured Division.
    What I do not know – is whether Steinhauer had made also Cap Eagles. There has been 3-5 patterns of Polish Free Eagles made in Germany – but none of them is attributed to Steinhauer.

    I finally have managed to find this photo in my library (original source – numizmatyka pl).
    This small badge (31x26 mm) is proving difficult to identify – I have practically given up.
    What I know is that it is not the Badge of the Polish – Scottish Society (1941)
    Perhaps Any of You has some suggestions?

    Hi Artur, I can't give you a postive ID on the badge, although the use of the thistle does suggest a Scottish connection. Here's the same badge applied onto a silver vodka tumbler from my collection. The tumbler is marked "Polish Army in Great Britain", dated 1942. It is one of a series of tumblers produced by W. Buszek.

    Regards,
    Tony
