C 29 -- 50 Years of the Mongolian Air Force

The first badge is as shown by Battushig. The second is a NIB variety which, I somehow suspect, is how the badge is supposed to look. Any photos of it in wear??

C 06 -- Choibalsan's Best Shooter

These have been well discussed on and off in isolated threads. This is the Type 1 badge (angled rifle);I don't have a Type 2 (horizontal rifle) yet.

After buying three (type 2s) and getting the wrong one

(type 1s) twice I finally got one last month!

C 32 -- Air Force Pin

Deapite Battushig's description, these look like air force wings to me. The center of this specimen presents many puzzles, as it is either been abraded or something has fallen off.

Whatever it is, it is the firct class of it.

Mysteries persist.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
