MEGA RARE!! Original WWII RAF 'Pathfinder Force' 8
This is a 100% genuine piece of RAF "Pathfinder Force" Memorabilia, the likes of which you might never see on the market again. Let's face it, there was only one 8 Group in the Royal Air Force. 8 Group (Training) existed in the final year of WWI and was only redesignated No 8 (Pathfinder Force) Group on 8 January 1943 and it was disbanded on 15 December 1945.
Cast in metal and mounted on an oak shield the plaque is at least twice the size of the 'standard' WWII Squadron Plaque. To give an idea of the size I have pictured the PFF Plaque alongside a 540 (PRU) Squadron Plaque which came with it.
The condition is exemplarary, with over 95% of the original paint in place.
This is "fresh to the market" having recently acquired it from a collector in California along with a selection incredible pieces of Aviation Memorabilia......WATCH THIS SPACE!!
