The photo on the ABW forum shows the date letter as capital D, which would be 1939. Perhaps something made for the 40th anniversary of this organisation?

As High Wood says, flag on the left is a British ensign rather than the UK flag as such. Canada's old flag was a red ensign - perhaps this was some joint Canadian-US service or organisation.

The way the badge is shown in the first photo, with the pins downwards, the letter behind the propeller looks like a Greek E. Perhaps this comes from Greece.
