Title Cavalry brigade officer's badge
Nationality Latvian
Period c 1920s
Price £195.00

This badge, instituted in 1919, was awarded to the officers of the cavalry brigade by the newly established Latvian state (the Latvian coat of arms is in the central shield). Latvia was ultimately surrendered by Hitler to Stalin, along with Lithuania, in the general carve-up of 1939, when Poland went the same way.

Its condition is nice. It is numbered on the reverse and is of three-piece construction, quite apart from a two-piece securing device.

i received the baio - great item - thanks

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
