Royal Auxiliary Air Force (AAF) Mufti Lapel Badge - Ladies Pin Fitting

Royal Auxiliary Air Force (AAF) Mufti Lapel Badge - Ladies Pin Fitting

Post WW2 Royal Auxiliary Air Force (Just AAF during the war, Royal bestowed in 1947 by King George V) ) unmarked silver lapel badge with original pin fitting as issued to female members. Lapel circa 24mm tall. Silver dark toned otherwise in very good condition.

The Auxiliary Air Force owes its origin to Lord Trenchard's vision of an elite corps of civilians who would serve their country in flying squadrons in their spare time. Instituted by Order in Council on 9 October 1924, the first Auxiliary Air Force squadrons were formed the following year. The pilots of AAF squadrons were generally formed from the society's elite, who in contrast to those of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve (RAFVR) which had been trained in the RAF and left but were obliged to return to service if required. During the war, the AAF also provided manpower for Barrage Balloon Squadrons and Anti-aircraft Balloon Defences. Their achievements were honoured by the prefix "Royal" conferred by King George VI in 1947.

See my item 61969 for the officially numbered wartime version.

WW2 RAF Recycled Aircraft Perspex Royal Air Force Cap Badge Sweetheart Brooch

WW2 RAF Recycled Aircraft Perspex Royal Air Force Cap Badge Sweetheart Brooch

Made from the Perspex of crashed and damaged aircraft. The central motif looks like it has been taken from the standard RAF cap badge. So a good early example of WW2 recycling all round!

Circa 6.7cm in height from top of bar to base of heart, and circa 5cm across, so a large item. Original pin fittings and no damage. Unusual and attractive.
