Polish Combat Paratrooper Jump Wing

Product Details

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.
