1943 Lancaster Bomber Crew Insignia

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis group came together from an antique show down south. The obvious age of the group, including the 1940’s frame and the age spots on the notes taped to the back makes me believe this was created by a veteran either during the war or immediately afterwards.

I consulted two different collectors of wings to check the authenticity. Of course they both came back pointing out “obvious reproductions”, neither of them agreeing at all on which ones were wrong. So I am going to go with “these are all good and you are all idiots”.
