Default Pegasus Badges

I'd like to get some input as to the authenticity/ timeframe for these patches. All feedback is appreciated!

Thanks!

Dave

Default Hi pal

I think and I'm trying here and awaiting correction.
Both original.
Left probably post war and right WW2
Luc is your man for these pieces.
Regards
Jon

They are both original and of the wartime type - it is impossible to know for sure the exact date of manufacture. What you have to remember is that surplus badges from WW2 were still issued post war

I'd certainly be happy with either or both of those.

I think that the pegasus pictured first is the correct WW2 pattern, the second one (with reversed fabric) I believe to be manufactured post-war.
