    Default unknown Polish badges?

    I came across this set of badges. Apparently they all came from one individual, and is that possible? I have no thorough knowledge or research books on the topic of PSNZ badges and I have no idea of what most of them represent. I find the dragons interesting, are they collar badges? What regiment did this individual belong to? There is also an interesting pre war plaque that came with this set. Is this all naval related? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Hubal,

    It is possible that all of the belonged to a single individual. I don’t know too much about the metal plaque (other than you are correct that it has a naval connection) - but the rest belong to a soldier in the Polish 2nd Warsaw Armoured Division, 16th Pomorski Infantry Brigade, HQ / 65th Battalion, the latter being my father’s unit. See below for the identification of each insignia. The small 'Pomorski' shield badges were worn on the beret. The 2nd Warsaw Armoured Division “ramie pancerne” along with the 2nd Corps syrena on the left arm, and the British 8th Army shield on the right.

    Very nice set, and thank you for sharing!

    Regards,
    Tony
