Unusual Theater-Made Wings; Equally Weird Inscription

Recommended Posts

I picked these up recently for a good price. The research I did on the forum leads me to believe they are either Mexican/Latin American or CBI made. They appear to be cast, but are very nicely made and heavy, with hand-done enhancements on the obverse. Would appreciate any thoughts. I have NO idea what the inscription means, but believe it is period. The wings are unmarked but appear to be real silver...

My guess would be CBI but my knowledge is out of date by a few years.

Kadet, that's a very handsome Air Crew wing! Is it a shirt-badge? Or full size?
