USA Cap badge
« on: April 15, 2017, 09:04:36 am »
Hallo. I need more information. I received this cap USA cap badge from a friend. He said it was amongst his father’s stuff which he brought back from WW2. His father was a South African and served as an aircraft mechanic in the desert war (at this stage it seems more in Libya than in Egypt)
This badge is obviously “self-made” and not from the higher quality that one would find with other factory produced badges and there are no words or letter or figures at the back. Any ideas or suggestions?

It's an officer's style of cap badge, and certainly appears to have been locally made.

Thank you Tredhed2 - if you say "locally" - do you think there in the desert ?

He was a South African serving as an American officer or this is a device that he picked up while over there?
