    Two locally made cast silver officers badges, one on a long slider for the slouch hat, the other pin back for the beret, also one other ranks brass cap badge and two shoulder strap devices. Came as part of a group which included a formation sign for Persia & Iraq Force (also known as P & I command). WWII period, they became a parachute unit in 1942.
