Default Polish Lapel Badges

Hi guys,

Picked these up today. I don't know much about polish badges and don't even know where to start with researching them. Does anyone have any useful links or sites I could use?

They're all screw backs and most are made by elektro poznan.

Try this site:

Your badges seem to be the collar badges used by the Polish Army between 1961 and 1973.

If you can get ahold of the book, "Army Badges and Insignia Since 1945, Book One" by Guido Rosignoli, pub. Blandford Colour Series, 1973, 1976, ISBN 0713706481, it should ID your badges.

The day the government succeeds in taking away our dress uniforms, badges and colours, and all the so called "non-functional" items; they will find themselves with an army that cannot defend them. Robert Heinlein, "Starship Troopers"

Ljubo's a good bloke for trades, I haven't exchanged anything with him for years but he used to source old military photos for me as well as insignia.
