    RNZAF Memorabillia

    Is anyone interested in some? Rank slides, shoulder flashes etc

    If Dougie isn't interested I'd really appreciate some please. I've an RNZAF flight overall which is missing some of its accoutrements as pictured below. If anyone can help me out I'd be eternally grateful as it'd certainly be going to a good home, one that has a vested interest in preserving NZ and SA military history



    So missing are:

    * SQN badge
    * Aircraft type (I'm assuming that this is what occupies the real estate on right chest)
    * Name badge (left chest)

    Would appreciate anything that's going though.

    Nah I am trying to get rid of some

    the circular badge is the unit or flight. Usually these are a group collaborated design and can be pretty funky.

    Hmmm google image is failing me. But for example 3SQN have a round, red velcro badge that has a crouching warrior holding a taiaha.

    Anyway this is some of what I have if anyone wants it...

    Officer cadet. It's a rank held for about a year while training to be an officer (regular force).

    Crown probably goes with the three chevron gold patch I guess....could be the crown that tops them to make them a Flight Sergeant. No idea about the navel thing eh, that one is plastic.

    Changing the topic slightly but still on topic of air forces, a South African Air Force C-47 TP (the TP stands for turbo-prop) went down in bad weather in the Drakensberg mountains 2 days ago. The crew were flying in Instrument Meteorological Conditions and the SAR effort to locate the crash site was hampered due to the prevailing conditions.

    I've learned today that they've located the wreckage and unfortunately all 6 crew and 5 pax perished did not survive.
