Recommended Posts

Hi gents,

Can you please help me to identify this polish badge? Is it: Commemorative badge of the Soldiers and Insurgents Association of the VIII District, 2nd Class?

Thanks

Alex, this is one of the honorary badges of Polish military units from the post-WWI period during the 1919-1921 Russo-Polish War in which Poland guaranteed its independence from Soviet Russia.  Specifically, this badge is for members of the Pomeranian Front.  In Polish: Odznaka Front Pomorski "Bóg Wolność i Ojczyzna"

English: Badge of the Pomeranian Front "God, Freedom, and Homeland"

You can Google and see several for sale.  However, I always urge caution with anything Polish; Polish militaria is heavily faked.  Unfortunately, I am not expert enough to offer any opinion on the originality of your posted badge.

Does any one know of any sites which list the fake Polish badges, preferably comparing them with the originals. Doesn't matter if the site"s in Polish.
