Wing mystery

Hi Guys

A mate of mine sent me this picture for identification thinking it might be artillery since it has 7 flames?

Anyone seen this version before?

Not that I am aware of, as the NFA continued to wear their NATAL versions for many years and suspect the other CF units might have done so as well?

Hi Guys

I found this yesterday in a militaria shop but no one seems to know why it was made or if it is an official badge or just a sweetheart brooch?

Made by Gaunt London.

Thanks
