Yes, the most likely application of a pinback wing was tropical use. That RCAF AG on the top is a great one!

Sea Rescue/Search and Rescue?

I was recently asked about this wing. As the story goes, it could be a pre WW2 badge from a Sea Rescue or Search and Rescue unit. Has anyone seen a badge like this before?

Those look like really nice original pilot wings. I'd have to see the backside of them to be sure, but they look to be made of a very fine quality silk. I am envious!

Bandmaster's badge?

Greetings all. I recently picked up this oversized badge, and I'd consider it too well made to be a reproduction. Could this be a Bandmaster's badge for a fur bonnet?
