MEGA RARE!! Original 'Late Arrivals' Club Badge -
Before you go any further, have a look at this short video clip;
If you have just watched the clip you will see that this example of the RAF 'Late Arrivals' Club Badge is IDENTICAL to that being presented to the RAF Pilot in the video. It is also identical to that shown in Mick Prodger's Book, with the horizontal lugs and not the replicated version with the vertical lugs.
I had to clean this badge with a silver cloth to ensure there were no English markings/hallmarks on it....there aren't, I was also please to find that even the cotter pin and the lugs are made from Egyptian silver.
