  1. I've asked to a cuban friend of mine, ex Sub Oficial Paratrooper and Avispas Negras. He confirm that this type of badge are 100% genuine. His answer: "Estas insignias son las que usaban en la antigua brigada de desembarco aéreo (BDA), y se fabricaban en la antigua URSS para nuestras tropas, ya después se comenzaron a hacer aquí mismo y los números significaban la categoría del paracaidista, por ejemplo: M: Categoría de Maestro paracaidista o Master 1: Paracaidista de primera 2; Paracaidista de segunda 3; Paracaidista de tercera Y la sin numero es la que le entregan a los soldados cuando realizaban su primer salto"
  2. Thanks for the info manuel. Is very similar to the soviet one and it seems logical looking the naval Officer. The only strange thing is that Ramiro Valdes also wears it and i didn't know he had spent years in the MGR and subs; this seems strange
  3. Manuel if you can add again the image could be very useful for us
  4. Someone have news about that?
  5. Hi Manuel, thanks again for your useful clarifications. If you can add again the photo because photobucket policy sucks
  6. Very strange, i've never seen any photo of that bucket worn by cuban soldiers
  7. If i remember correctly the belt buckles in Batista's era (pre-revolution) were the same: Cuba coat of arms and nothing more. Right?
