Hello to you all,

He is one I have acquired recently, to add to my others.

Ken,

I dont believe thats a drivers badge.

I think its a Foreign rank star off the shoulder, not sure which country.

regards

Hi Rob,

Really lovely example this mate. My guess would be WWII.

Well done and thanks for sharing.

Cheerio,

Roy
