RAF Navigators Brevet

A fine padded example of a Navigators half wing aircrew badge. This replaced the earlier Observer's brevet in 1942. This is the scarcer pin back example with a brass backing plate sewn onto the reverse of the badge. It is likely to have been used in conjunction with a Khaki Drill (KD) uniform and the pin back enabled it to be removed before the frequent washing necessary in the Mediterranean and Far East Theatres. A really nice example that would be impossible to upgrade. Measures 3” (8 cm)
