Austin Flying A Badge
The earliest Austin badge of this style was part of the pressing of the brass radiator, and was deeper and narrower than the one illustrated. The later badge was first used on the 1931 models. This badge was used until the late 1940s, and was then superceded by the 'Flying A' and the words 'Austin of England' in chrome script. There appears to be very little information on the origins of the 'Flying A', but they became known as 'Kidney-slicers' (a reference to the injuries that could be inflicted on wayward pedestrians). If you were lucky enough to own an A90 Atlantic, then you had no less than two 'Flying A's', plus a stylised Austin Badge.
