Originally asked in the aviation stackexchange, though posted here under advice.

I stumbled upon this set of aviation wings whilst searching through a box of old things, though I'm at a loss as to their origin, and what they symbolise.

Judging from the lack of skill used to craft the item (Seems the mold had an off day), I doubt it's rare, though I could, very likely, be wrong.

Other than what you can see in the picture, the wings are roughly two inches long, and made of metal; sterling silver, perhaps?

As for background information, I did have Polish family who fought during WW2 in the west, and another who served in the RAF Regiment. There really isn't much else I can tell you, so I apologise for the ambiguity.

Still, I hope you can help!

    Indeed, a bigger, sharper, picture would help. – John Dallman Jul 23 '17 at 11:56

    A view of the back might help too. – KillingTime Jul 23 '17 at 14:05

    Given the low quality of the piece, I'd be very surprised if this was an official badge of any self-respecting organisation. In fact the quality of the metal reminds me a lot of the toy sheriff's badge I had as a kid. – KillingTime Jul 23 '17 at 17:06
  • To be honest, that's my thinking too. Very poor quality for an official badge. Either way, though, it would be interesting to know of it's origin, even if it came from a cereal box. – Darthoq Jul 23 '17 at 17:11
