Hi,

Well he is almost right, they are to the vechtwagens KNIL but the silver colored one (tank in wreath) is a baret badge and the bronze badge is a shoulder badge.

Jon,

Thanks for the link.

Radio Operator half wing

Hi,

I would welcome any opinions on the radio operator half wing, it appears to be genuine but I am a bit worried about the lettering, which seems a bit off.

I have a laquered badge and I have been wracking my brain how to get it off without damaging the badge.
I think I will be boiling it tomorrow, seems like a safe option.
