    ? About Cuban Parachutist Badges

    I've asked to a cuban friend of mine, ex Sub Oficial Paratrooper and Avispas Negras. He confirm that this type of badge are 100% genuine. His answer: "Estas insignias son las que usaban en la antigua brigada de desembarco aéreo (BDA), y se fabricaban en la antigua URSS para nuestras tropas, ya después se comenzaron a hacer aquí mismo y los números significaban la categoría del paracaidista, por ejemplo: M: Categoría de Maestro paracaidista o Master 1: Paracaidista de primera 2; Paracaidista de segunda 3; Paracaidista de tercera Y la sin numero es la que le entregan a los soldados cuando realizaban su primer salto"

    Badge identifications

    Thanks for the info manuel. Is very similar to the soviet one and it seems logical looking the naval Officer. The only strange thing is that Ramiro Valdes also wears it and i didn't know he had spent years in the MGR and subs; this seems strange

    Cuban military belt buckle

    If i remember correctly the belt buckles in Batista's era (pre-revolution) were the same: Cuba coat of arms and nothing more. Right?
