    Smile Polish Sqwadron Badge (Group de chasse I/145 Varsovie )

    I would like to share with you my very rare badge.
    This badge is very controversial and with the help of Jacek (3DSK) my research is completed.
    I attaching translation from French and images from my badge.

    Group de chasse I/145 Varsovie
    Fighter Sqwadron GCI/145
    "In February 1940, it was decided to create a group of fighter pilots entirely of Poles under the command of Cdr Joseph Kepinski. On 1 March, two squadrons of Polish pilots were grouped on the basis of Lyon-Bron (Rhône, in France) to be processed on Morane Saulnier 406 and Caudron 714. Thus was born the Fighter Group I/145 Varsovie (Warsaw), which selects as the Polish eagle emblem.
    On May 10, 1940, Fighter Group 1 / 145 was still under training, and only from June 2 he was really involved in the conflict. He got up to the armistice of 25 June : 12 confirmed aerial victories."













    Now attaching address of French internet side where the 1/145 squadron badge in shown.
    I hope you enjoy images of this badge.

    Many thanks K! But in this case all groundwork was done by ze-pole. I just passed on your question. Its, however, great to see that your initial hunch about that this badge was in some way connected to PAF in France, turned out to be spot on.

    This is why I really like this hobby - great teamwork and another mystery is solved

    Cheers,
