Army Air Corps Cap Badge 1942-1950

White metal, 46.5mm tall, 40.25mm wide, two copper loops east-west to the reverse.

A laurel wreath with an imperial crown at the apex. Within the lower section of the wreath are the letters A.A.C. bound within two arcs. On this stands an eagle with wings outstretched, facing right.

The image of the reverse of this badge is restricted to my forum album.
