Many thanks. In your opinion is the formation sign of 14 Polish Armd Bde (page 1) a Brabant production or was it made in Italy? Mike

Is there enough interest to pin a posting on Brabant weave insignia?

If you want to include my pictures in it, go ahead. Someone on the Forum said they were Brabant weave, but since I can't find the original post, I can't confirm that. Whoever it was, you know who you are!

Mine came in a wooden box with RHA cap/beret badges and metal shoulder titles, with the jerboa inlaid into the lid of the box. Several units of the RHA were in N.Africa, as well as later in NW Europe.

I was under the impression from previous discussions that the badges made in Italy are those that have an all round cut edge (over locked) and backing. Although some of these are similar to the later German made badges, that have a tighter weave.

The Brabant weave ones are those that are produced as a roll and have a cut edge either top and Bottom or left and right.

Happy to be wrong.

Just comparing Marc's 7 Armoured Divn with mine confirms that both are the same, so mine are obviously Brabant weave. Always good to have confirmation!

Hi Luc, My understanding is that there are only the two settings, public and private. If members wish to add they will have to go through you. (If I understand the settings correctly.)
