This is a very rare French SOP (Sopwith-Strutter) 283 / BR (Breguet: replaced Sopwith) 283 Aero Squadron Badge. The badge is a lion with beautifully detailed wings at rest guarding a propeller.
13/16” height and 2-11/16” width.
Horizontal pin with “C” catch.
This is from a foreign militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON/JMB10 LAGEJX8/10 SAEJJX10/10
8 (Excellent-): Wing has a beautiful glow and not a lot of wear.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
