Default RNAS

I now have two of these.CP&Co "Charles Packer"of regent st marketed them at the time as The Royal naval air service.Looking at threads in the RN section on the forum they look very alike to the early "Fix" type gilt badges worn by the service. regards Gary

Hi
Worth getting it checked, my one is solid gold with ruby eye, worn by a RNAS pilot on his full dress tunic.
They are private purchase and yes based on Fix, some would say they are sweetheart badges, depends which side of the fence your on.
Cheers
Steve
