Default RAF finds

Hi all just received these items the New Zealand Wings are fake/copy? Would like that to be verified though?

Another item is a Queens Crown modern RAF badge but “GOLD” in colouring, have placed by what I consider a normal RAF badge? Early pattern perhaps? RAF Band?

A cloth Air Gunners Association, not greatly made but never seen one like this? Has anyone seen similar?

A nice find also being the RAF Police Auxillaries, and the Warrant card holder I suppose?

Two Shoulder Eagles, are these Canadian?

How could I forget the Bomber wing, well used and padded, correct I trust a confirmation would be great though!

All came together so there are blaser badges and RAF Regiment Shoulder Titles and RAF Badges Q/C & K/C & Plastic Economy.

Army Flying Wing and SAS Wings pointed upwards so this would be Territorials?

Air Training Corps brassard

The Fakes, an RAF Q/C ? Probably a copy, as are the other 4 Army badges be nice to have confirmation on the RAF one though? Many thanks Billy

The 2 'shoulder eagles' are actually 'Preliminary Flying Badges'. I think these are for flight trained cadets or something like that. Not sure what the actual use is, maybe somebody else can explain.
Cheers,
Alex

Hello Billy,

There’s an older thread on the Preliminary Flying Badge that you may find of interest too.
