Hi everyone,

I'm on the lookout for 4 (or more) of the FAA buttons- the ones with the eagle abd rope border. Matching preferably, but not a deal breaker.

If anyone has some surplus to their needs, please drop me a line.

Cheers,

Bob

FAA buttons were the same as those used by the Royal Navy, rope edging and featuring an anchor.

You are absolutely right- what I am looking for is the RNAS buttons, not FAA. I am doing up a display for both and wrote up the wrong request.

Still need the 4 RNAS buttons

Any help greatly appreciated as it's the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Navy and a few Canadians served in the RNAS.

Hello,

Marway Militaria has just posted their latest auction catalogue on their website. They have one RNAS button listed (Canadian manufacture).

Not sure if you want to chase it, but it is there.

Cheers,

Geoff
