Hopefully someone may able to help !! Thank you Steve
  3. There is a original Cairo made version with tail touching , though as you say correctly the badge at the start is wrong , the body of the scorpion is wrong .
  4. Hi , can anyone please help with the ID of this badge. thanks Steve
  5. ....had differing opinions on this . so far ...its modern, its Russian made 1945/46 , transitional piece ....can anyone confirm and maybe add a picture of it being worn ? thanks Steve
  6. Thank you all for your kind help and advice regarding my little rarity...very pleased to share this with you all ....now i just have to find the land version ...lol kind regards steve

  12. Hi , thanks Owen , yes it would be nice !! spelling is clear up to the letter "K" in DENIC "K" E , but I am pretty sure it is HUSSAR HEINRICH DENICKE ....(thought surname could be DENICRE ,but with his main name being Germanic , I doubt this is correct ) so I think this one boils down to if anyone has the Brunswick Waterloo roll for the Hussar Regt ??? as that would confirm !! ..., wow and wouldn't it be a find if that's him !! hope someone would be able to confirm !! Thanks Steve
  13. ...thanks Jareth , but still remains unidentified. It is not any known aviation insignia that I as a collector or other aviation collectors recognise. I still lean towards aviation school, or puppet state pilots wings....something will crop up eventually ! Thanks for the help folks ;-)
  14. I truly doubt if this is a fantasy piece ,there is no logic in creating a one off wing out of original pieces , ie correct wartime star, no modern fibers , correct wartime backing paper and nice original aging to bullion , certainly not chemically aged. Just because it is unidentified I certainly wont be condemning to the bin !! cheers Steve
  15. ...star is the same as pilots wings and backing paper same as other wings from japan......think this identification process will take a while lol cheers all !!
  16. yes just spotted the thread and thought I have one of them !! very interesting thread !! cheers steve
  17. Hello all, Trying to identify these wartime made wings, they have the same backing as other wartime Japanese cloth / bullion wings that I have seen...these originally came with a grouping of Japanese items from WW2 in a veterans estate clearance in the US....any help on identification would be appreciated. Thanks steve
  18. Thought I would post my example !! Official type I believe. regards steve
  19. Hi all, Recently bought a nice Brunswick Waterloo to HEINR .DENICKE or (Denicre, as wear on letter) Hussars regt. Just wondered if anyone had any info on him , or advice reference research etc..anything is much appreciated. Thanks Steve
  20. I have a Japan Sea Disaster Medal first class , gilded silver medal, scarce post war award, original ribbon and hook...just looking at some idea of value ?? thanks steve
