Hi there

I think the bottom wing may be Ansett Airlines but I have never seen a cloth version. The second bottom wing, I have no idea. Looks like some sort of British crest in the middle, but I am only guessing!

Regards

Doug

Wow thanks mate ! Having a look around I reckon you're right about the Ansett thing ! I found one that it quite different, but similar enough 😁

Hi there Timmy

That link is a late 1950s badges from memory. The Ansett badges with the art deco type "AA" , were 1940s I think. Could be wrong on the eras - long while since I collected airline wings.

I have asked around about the "VAF" and nobody seems to have a clue. Not military and not Australian is all I could come up with.

Regards

Doug
