  1. Hi all, Just wanted to share a nice small badge that I received today. Like I understand this is a silver rosette badge issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary (1909-1959) of the first flight of an Italian-made aircraft. This badge was issued by the Associazione Industria Aerospazio (Italian Aerospace Industries Association), the AIA was established in 1946. This badge commemorates the first flight of an Italian built aircraft which took place at Venaria on the 31st January 1909. The prototype triplane remained airborne for about 20 metres (22.2 yds). The aircraft was a tri-winged Faccioli designed and built by Aristide Faccioli (1848-1920) and flown by his son, Mario (1885-1915). The aircraft crashed on landing and Mario was seriously injured but made a speedy and complete recovery. Mario continued working with his father as a test pilot developing new aircraft but tragically, was killed in a plane crash aged only 30. In case there is any extra information available of this badge then please let me know. Thanks, Noor
  2. Thank you so much!
  3. Hi all, Any idea what imperial Russia award is below?
  4. Great award and well researched. Only thing to point out - place Koivisto is direct translation from Russian language. Actually it should be Kuivastu. A location and an harbour just before main island Saaremaa. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuivastu
  5. Looks like she died 21 January 2005 at the age of 92. But nothing else found yet about her service, etc.
  6. Hi all, I randomly picked up a single Australia Service Medal 1939-1945 that was issued to "106640 IDA SMITH RAAF". I checked recordsearch.gov.ua website and I can see that: Ida May Smith was born 12 July 1912 in Wallsend NSW. She enlisted in Sydney 5 October 1942. Next of Kin Albert Smith. Dicharge 8 June 1945 (rank Corporal). I am wondering is there more information possible to find about her and her service. Also, in case she didn't serve overseas, was this medal her only entitlement? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Commissioned 1915 https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/29330/supplement/10240/data.pdf 1940 WW2 service (APC) https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/34888/supplement/4087 His MIC confirms MBE and I did quick scan of new years honours lists but wasn't able to locate him. I will have a second look soon.
  8. Thanks again guys! No plan to keep it so who would be interested to buy, please let me know via private message. Thanks!
  9. Hi all, I just spotted this frack spange on sale and I am was just wondering is there enough clues to put the name behind this medal bar as well? Thanks, Noor
  10. Hi gents, Here is one that I just picked up today. A really nice little piece of jewellery!
  11. Looks like it is part of an (orchestrate ) uniform (cloak badge - what could be a better translation?) https://starina.ru/item/85465934_Пряжка_Застежка_плаща_чиновника_служащего_министерства_Императорская_Россия_Пересыл_бесплатно
  12. Thanks Paul! For comparison, I added an excellent shooter badge next to it. Looks big enough to be a regular badge instead of lapel? Obviously it could be a civilian as well but I never came across anything like this in the antiques, forums or internet. the badge in question came out from Estonia, so perhaps related to the local musical events/movements? Thanks for your thoughts!
  13. Thank you so much guys for your comments! Lots of possibilities I assume. interesting combination that I like!
  14. Hi all, Could you please help me to ID a badge on the below picture please. It is definitely Imperial Russian era and I think it is a military related (bandsman?) badge but I wasn't able to find any similar ones using Google Search. Also does it missing its enamel? Thanking you in advance!
