Hi all,

I have come across what looks to be an SAAF Ring, I cannot, however find out any information on this piece online and wondered if anyone could help me out at all?

Was in a bundle of Pins, Badges, Buttons and a Cap as well.

The ring does appear to be made of brass.

It looks like it was made during WW2 by someone using the eagle from a SAAF cap badge. The making of such unofficial items was quite a popular pastime.
