Inscription on a RAF badge: who knows what is means?
From the forum http://ww2talk.com/ Ted Angus.

Its a Queens Crown as stated, worn by Flt Sgts and below. In the RAF we marked everything with our last 3 numbers and surname.
So in my case ANGUS 117 in the case of the owner of the badge CASH 703.
In the attached photos the badge looks to be an anodised plastic version if so they were initially sold in the NAAFI or military tailors - The service issue badges were Brass. It was only in later years that anodised plastic badges became service issue; One thing is certain this badge is post 1953 and has nothing to do with the crew of the Lancaster at the link .

This message reached me:

In my collection I found a RAF badge from which I expect it was from one of the crewmembers of http://www.backtonormandy.org/the-history/air-force-operations/airplanes-allies-and-axis-lost/lancaster/Lancaster11328.html it says: CASH 702 (engraved on the back) My question ism, does it belong to a (known) fallen pilot in that case the family can have it. Does it represent any historic value? My intentions are not financially driven at all.

Any clue?
