Gilt wreath (for landing on enemy terrirory) is attached via 3 small rivets. This is the original white/red felt backing.

Note: This is not a combat glider pilot badge but a badge awarded to paratroopers who went into combat in gliders. Thank you to Kamil Laciok for the updated information. - 1/18/2010
