Would like to find out a little more regarding this corps.
A rare badge to a very small corps and one that is rather unresearched.
Here's a little i have come up with.
thanks

Interesting stuff, BC.

What a great find! A pretty little badge ......though I can't help feeling that the designer has the wings wrong but that may just be me.

Thanks for the post.
