    Found over the holiday weekend at an Antiques Fair. I assume it is for a wee dram of the hard stuff ! Also with it , a miniature Parachute Qualification badge , possessing the same manufacturer's cartouche.

    Nice finds, congrats. I’ve got a vodka tumbler just like that one. Buszek produced a series of these with different patriotic appliques. Marked “Polish Army in Great Britain” on the base and sometimes dated as well. I believe mine is marked 1942. Very collectible!

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Hello Ordinary Soldier
    Nice badge - I have almost the same but without markings.
    What is a length of your badge?
    Greetings

    thank you for the kind words U2. the eagle is 35 mm in length. possibly a " sweetheart " or the ilk. I am still wearing the black crepe armband ! The lady who I purchased them from mentioned in conversation that a couple of weeks previously she had sold a bigger one that had a gold wreath. Bugger !

    Finally, at long last an opportunity to use this smiley

    Very nice indeed.

    I would say a month of mourning for the one that got away......

    Cheers, Ade.
