This badge has been copied from one of our original versions. It is not your standard cheap 'flat' copy, the crown measures a stunning 15mm tall, just like the originals. The crown is the WW2 Kings Crown and the badge is approx. 60mm tall by 60mm wide and the Crown is 15mm tall!
The eagle (or albatross), again is a pressed brass reproduction made from a private purchased original. It has 'LONDON' on the reverse and the detailing is extremely sharp compared to standard 'sand cast' copies.
Worn by British, American US Eagle Squadron, Australian, Belgium, Barbados, Canada, France, Ireland, Jamaica, Newfoundland, New Zealand, Rhodesia, South Africa pilots and officers.Poland and Czechoslovakia generally worn their own insignia.
The penultimate picture shows a comparison between the new version and our aged version and the last picture shows an original badge from this period.
