Thanks for that great reply! I think this question has been put to bed.

Best,

Guys,

Just to add my two pennies - Cuban badges are actually Russian/Soviet manufacture.

The officer qualification badges are also very similar.

Airex 1992

Guys,
Do you have any comments/ideas on this one?
It,s being described as a para badge issued in limited quantities to a display team.
Fantasy?

Eddie.

Eddie,

AIREX is an international air show, could it be a souvenir pin from the Russian pavilion?

Alexei,
Thanks for the promt response.
This was about all I could find out about this AIREX 1992... it was as you mention an international air display, but this is the first time I have seen a badge with the actual name and year of the event on a Para badge.
Note 1992, the year?
I somehow find it hard to belive that these Para badges were made extra for the Display team at this time, so no doubt it is not an official issue.

Eddie.
