Saw this on Ebay - I think someone is about to be had for a large sum of cash.

What do you chaps think? I reckon the price is a giveaway for a start, before even commenting on the badge itself.
?? Uh... Hmmmnnnn... Dificult this one...
Everything else in the collection could feasibly be original, but the caterpillar stuff looks a bit "odd" to me....
To start with, the badge is nothing like the caterpillars I've experience of, then there's the engraving... no name, just "Lesley Irving", and finally the card - looks a whole lot different to others I've seen.
Now then... I've only seen RAF caterpillars, the one featured is USAAF I beleive, so, maybe there was two different issues, one to the RAF and one to the USAAF?? Who knows??
Too much money for my liking though!
