WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT OFFICERS GILT KINGS CROWN HEKMET PLATE
Officer's silver and gilt blue cloth helmet plate with 3 loops to reverse. According to Major R Bennett worn from 1901-23, although most regiments dispensed with the full dress uniform at the end of the great war. Very good example, but has soft solder to reverse. Looks like someone has fixed it to something for display purposes. Does not detract and is a very nice item.

WW1 AUSTRALIAN FLYING CORPS [AFC] WING
A scarce WW1 woven Australian Flying Corps Pilot's Brevet.

The Australian Flying Corps (AFC) was the branch of the Australian Army responsible for operating aircraft during World War I, and the forerunner of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). The AFC was established in 1912, though it was not until 1914 that it began flight training.

AFC units were formed for service overseas with the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) during World War I. They operated initially in the Mesopotamian Campaign. The AFC later saw action in Palestine and France. A training wing was established in the United Kingdom. The corps remained part of the Australian Army until it was disbanded in 1919, after which it was temporarily replaced by the Australian Air Corps. In 1921, that formation was re-established as the independent RAAF.
