I can't get past my first impression that this is perhaps ESTONIAN, because of the triangle. Pilots' badges had an eagle clutching the blue/black/white flag tricolor in a triangle, but this is not an aircrew badge.

The plane makes me think of the fat "Focke Wulf"-ish Ameican planes (maker eludes me) in use in Finalnd in 1939.

Then again, this could be something completely non-military.

If it IS military, try for one of the Baltic republics.

Brewster Buffalo - not exactly a performer like the FW - this is certainly not Hungarian... but I would lean towards the Estonian with the triangle motiff. It could also be a sport plane association...

Dutch regulations of the pre WW II period show no such insignia. It could be Finnish, as they have issued a lot commemorative badges and patches. Question could be asked at Finnishawards, a very interestin and informative forum.

    • 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.
