Looks fine to me.

 

CORRECTION:

 

Looks fine to me.

 

While not officially authorized by the War Department to sport an "E" in the center shield, it is never-the-less a Flight Engineer badge... made when 20th Bomber Command operated B-29 bases in both India and China.

 

So where was your badge made? India.

Thanks Cliff and Paul! I had thought the "E" wing was made in India if it was real but I wasn't sure about the "R". Anyway, thank you both for weighing in with your expertise!

I would agree, it looks like an Indian-made wing (or at least from that area). Great wing!

Nice unauthorized Flight Engineer wings MSHAW! Here's a couple more for comparison. The top wing was made by Beverlycraft...the bottom wing is likely CBI made.
