Alex, this is one of the honorary badges of Polish military units from the post-WWI period during the 1919-1921 Russo-Polish War in which Poland guaranteed its independence from Soviet Russia.  Specifically, this badge is for members of the Pomeranian Front.  In Polish: Odznaka Front Pomorski "Bóg Wolność i Ojczyzna"

English: Badge of the Pomeranian Front "God, Freedom, and Homeland"

You can Google and see several for sale.  However, I always urge caution with anything Polish; Polish militaria is heavily faked.  Unfortunately, I am not expert enough to offer any opinion on the originality of your posted badge.

Does any one know of any sites which list the fake Polish badges, preferably comparing them with the originals. Doesn't matter if the site"s in Polish.

Paul,

The only such webpages are different forums, especially WRF.

    • 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.
