  1. Hi there Jan

    Managed to drag the photos into the email. The first 2, without the shield, are the mystery ones. The third photo is that of the 1968 pilot. How long did th3 1968 badge last for and what doesthe current Czech pilot badge look like?

    Kind regards

    Doug

  2. Hello, I understand, that so called Pilot -Cosmonaut badge is not an official badge but a privately made badge to make profit. Can you clarify? Regards
  3. Hello, according to an article published two years ago by Central military archives Prague, it was first produced 500 pieces of the medal and shortly after another 300 pieces. There is no difference between both emmisions. From documents available it is clear, that no further medals were produced. Till June 2nd 1949 596 pieces was awarded. It is quite probale, that some medals were awarded later. Regards Jan See: http://www.vuapraha.cz/sites/default/files/documents/rocenka_vha_2014.pdf
  4. Poland help with this?

    Hello, ČSR means Československá Republika (Czechoslovak Republic), not socialist. This was an official abbreviation of the country since 1918. I have never seen such a badge before but it seems to be so called patriotic badge, I estimate from WW2 era, when different exile organisations were issuing them in big quantities. The name of the country was changed 1961 on Československá Socialistická Republika (Czechoslovak Socialist Republic), abbrevation ČSSR. In the years 1990 - 1992 the name was changed on Česká a Slovenská Federativní Republika, abbrevation ČSFR. Since 1992 the name is Česká Republika (Czech Republic), abbrevation ČR. All these abbrevations are used on medals. Regards Jan
