  20. So, this example of the Radio operator/Air gunner badge is again a true 1st pattern, having the 1st pat wreath & bird.... By C.E Juncker (same maker as above)..
  21. Ah, Darrell...forgive me!! It's past midnight and I'm as blind as a bot...BOT!! see, I told you.. Now this is where it gets a little complicated.... The badge, above is a pure 1st pattern example... 1 pat' bird on a 1st pat' wreath. The next one is a transitional piece, being a 2nd pat' bird on a 1st pat wreath. left over stock never going to waste it would seem.. This mix & match went on throughtout the production of the various patterns and makes things a little more interesting when it comes to the authentication process.. We will, no doubt, come to the even more complicated subject of supply and use of parts, between manufacturers, at some point.. 1st pat wreath with 2nd pat bird... I wish you all a very pleasant evening, where ever you are...
