The eagle used by the Polish 2nd Corps cap badge came in a few variations. Made in the middle east, Italy and London. They could be made of brass, copper or tin. Some were silver plated and used by officers. I'm sending a photo of my fathers beret which has the silver plated version, probably made in London. Sometimes if the eagle has a screw back the makes name and location may appear.
I think there was another one...I also have pics of a wire embroidered one on cloth but the one I want I'm sure is medal. Some of thse also seem to have a bar under them such as in your photo....but mine has no white bar.

If you have a look at the photos of Franciszek Dziewulski, the one of
my dad in uniform shows the badge on his hat,
and he wasn't an officer.
let me know if you want me to email you more information, I should be
able to, but I can't do it right this moment, I need to get the kids
off to school.

the fronts of their military caps? Did they all wear the same
medallion and was it a metal Polish eagle pin? If this was it does
anyone have a picture of it. I am not speaking of officers.
