Late Arrivals Club Winged Boot - A Published Examp

Generally considered to have been awarded to Polish aircrew in Europe, this extremely rare smaller size Late Arrivals Winged Boot, is the very example pictured on page 181 of Phil Froom’s excellent work on escape and evasion equipment.
Just 22mm in height and stamped .925 to the reverse, the badge is in very good undamaged condition but without the sprung securing pin.
The story of the Late Arrivals Club is well known but for those with an interest in the subject generally, “Evasion & Escape Devices produced by MI9, MIS-X, and SOE in World War 11” is a must have reference work.
