Hello
Thank you for looking; I know this is ARP but I've not come across one with lugs before so would appreciate any helpful information please?
Regards.

Thank you I see on closer inspection this may be the case as sometimes they were apparently used as cap badges, thank you as always for the kind help.

Worn in both berets and bowler hats, that i have seen photographic evidence for. The berets I have seen have had either the brooch or the lapel type badges attached. There doesn't appear to have been a set rule in place / enforced. This is the first example I have seen with lugs added.

The "Malta" ARP badges I have come across all had vertical lungs. However I cannot vouch for the others.

The lungs were there, primarily, to help them breathe.
