Polish Combat Paratrooper Jump Wing
In 1941, after the creation of the UK-trained 1st
Independent Parachute Brigade, this badge was adopted
as the sign of all Polish paras. It featured a diving silver
eagle. The symbol was also adopted by the cichociemni and
nowadays is used by all branches of the Polish Army. Also,
the Polish special unit GROM adopted a modified version of
the symbol as its emblem. It is commonly (though informally)
referred to as gapa (diving Eagle).
The back of this badge has two posts with butterfly style
clutch backs for wear.
