Polish parachutist and glider borne infantry qualification badges. The initial parachutist qualification is the badge on the left, with each qualifying soldier being awarded an individually numbered badge. After completing an operational jump, a separate serial numbered wreath is attached to the badge (centre). The badge on the right is the Glider pilot qualification worn by the Polish troops.

The badge on the left is ordinary Gliderborne Infantry (not pilot). IMO this is a copy.
After Market Garden operation only 15 Combat badges were presented (50 in total were ever made).
Thanks Rafal. Why do you think the badge is a copy? What are the clues that led you to this conclusion?
