6 Attachment(s)
hi all
i have some questions i would like some help with.
firstly in pic 1&2) it looks to be an unfinished RAF buckle?
pic 3&4) aiguillette of the RAF/RAAF? well it was supposed to be? but why would it have italian army motifs on it?
pic 5&6) is this a genuine RAAF wing? WW2?
thanks in advance

I think it can be said with a degree certainty that the aiguillette is not RAF and the wing is completely spurious.

Hi BC, the first image with the albatross and crown is actually the central motif of a RAF officers sword guard. It would have been trimmed then inset into the guard. If you Google it, you will find multiple images.

Cheers,

Greg

Except it is an Eagle!

The shoulder strap and aiguillette look to be the type worn by some members of the Household Cavalry.
