Default 1st ever Live Auction

Hi I think the Pathfinder badge is the only reason I bid on this but when I picked it up not "The" Pathfinder I was hoping to find! But a well made Jacket with a lovely Half-Wing, no name to inside of jacket what are your thoughts on this my main worry is if it has been "Jazzed up!" I realise these badges did get used (had this from an ex-pathfinder at Fairford R.I.A.T.).

Another nice win was these R.F.C. Sweethearts! Look forward to your views
! All the best billy

A recent thread on here explored all the rear fittings on the eagle badge but unless you know whose tunic it was you will never know one way or the other how long its been on the pocket.

regards

Hi Simon that is so true was hoping to have a name on the inside, as is its a nice Half-wing and half a Flt Sgts badge, and a nice jacket but without a label to say when it was made!

It was made before 1947 as it has 4 buttons.
It is not half a Flt Sgts badge = you mean an Officers Field Service Cap badge.
