Default Piranha lapel badge

Many many years ago I was given this lapel badge by a serving soldier in the Armed Forces of Malta and who told me the Government was mulling over ordering this AFV and, furthermore, that said badge to be worn only by Piranha crews. Sounds far-fetched but I have learnt to have an open mind where collectibles are concerned.

Appreciate any comments

I'm guessing the badge is a 'giveaway" piece of advertising PR handed out by the company?

Yes, could very well be so.

Thanks, GTB
