Help with Badge

Apologies if this is not the right area to post. Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction?

I have been passed a small metal badge, in the shape of an Ovel less than 1 " long, which says:

TEN GERMAN BOMBERS IN THE AIR
AND THE RAF FROM ENGLAND
SHOT THEM DOWN
A red background with RAF wings and King's crown, two St George crosses and the bottom line over black.

Anyone any ideas? Can put a photo on my site if necessary.

Re: Help with Badge

Sorry, it's not RAF memorabilia but a football one. It refers to a football chant:
There Were Ten German Bombers In The Air,
There Were Ten German Bombers In The Air,
There Were Ten German Bombers, Ten German Bombers,
Ten German Bombers In The Air.

And The RAF From England Shot One Down.
And The RAF From England Shot One Down.
And The RAF From England,
The RAF From England,
The RAF From England Shot One Down.

There Were Nine German Bombers In The Air… etc

Re: Help with Badge

Thanx Amrit1, for a speedy response. My Pal received this one in a batch of what was labelled as "Raf Squadron Badges". As I am a non-collector (and a non- footie person either!), I was fairly sure that one of you guys would nail it ........ perhaps just as well I did not put it in the Luftwaffe Forum :-)
Again, many thanks
Alan
