Re(1): Crewman brevets

Some good news.....Got a call from my supplier today to say that the order of crewman brevets had arrived. I went to Perth to pick them up to find that I had ordered 25 of them but he had ordered just 10. Adds more fuel to my belief that no good deed goes unpunished. He had ordered 12 so he had some samples so there was 12 for me to take. It seems that the earlier shipment that was faulty, was faulty because they had acid dipped them to give them an early tarnished appearance.
They have given them to me also and I have brought them home and polished them. They have come up well and look like the normal wings that we have worn for years and never polished. I have sent out 8 brevets today. They are all silver un-tarnished wings. They will tarnish after exposure to air.
I now have 4 untarnished and 10 tarnished wings to distribute. I am not disappointed with the tarnished wings and will be keeping 2 of those for myself. If you have a preference when ordering please say so. If the problem is large then I will order more wings and send them out as replacements. Please let me know.
