Original WWII Italian Army Fascist Tank Pilot Full Size Wings
Original WWII Italian Army Fascist “Tank Pilot” Full Size Wings. Very nice original Italian badge. They measure 74 mm across and are factory made not field construction. With typical Italian barrel catch on reverse for pin. Badge is fire gilt with nice high polish along the edge of the wings and details on the tank and eagle (not well shown in pictures). This variant appears to be for the Carro Veloce L3/33 light tank. While the “tank pilot” badges were never official as the war ended before the regulations were enacted a few specifics are known. The badges were made by the same companies who produced pilot wings. The tank affixed to the wing is the tank which the “pilot” trained for. Finally, the same regulation for size of the wings applies to the RA pilot and the tank pilot. This set is a full size set for the uniform tunic. See my other auctions with military and other items!
