Title Royal Flying Corps car badge
Nationality British
Period c 1953

This badge is die-struck brass with a chrome and enamel finish. The crown on the badge itself is a Queen Elizabeth II variety and the RFC badge in the centre is a 1914-18 badge which has been chromed with two screw lugs fitted to the reverse. The enamel colours are those of the RAF.

The owner of this badge (H. Colby - I bought it from the family and had his 'Air Board Technical Notes' for the RFC, as well as photos), who served in the RFC, was obviously very proud of his early service and had his early badge chromed up to match the later RAF badge, replacing the RAF centrepiece with the RFC one.

The enamel is in good shape, with the chrome showing some age spotting, especially on the reverse.
