    Hi thanks , still believe pin is a British type ,see British made US para badges etc ... this type of lapel mufti badges were produced in the UK but usually are ARP or company "on war service" badges ..
    cheers

    Could be , but I've seen many Eastern Block pins with this type of case catch and pin set up . The "W" looks like I've seen it before somewhere . Good luck in the search .

    Hi Steve, I've never seen this badge associated with the Polish forces / vets. Best wishes in your search.

    Regards,
    Tony
