OSD's also come with loops - both 1st and 2nd WWs. I have to admit, I haven't seen sliders on OSDs but they do appear on S or S&G badges !

Very nice !
The strengthening loop behind the top of the slider was authorised in 1906 with a new WO Pattern number 4368B/1906.

'theatre made' - in India or Egypt. Look up where the Camerons were stationed ! Battalion 'War Diaries' often note 'local' provisions.

Infantry badges got sliders in 1906 but I'm not very good on cavalry badges - it all depends on what headgear they had. Anyway, i'll see what I have in my notes at home tonight

Phil, I'm not sure what you mean. I've never seen a long pagri slider with a hairpin bend ! In any case removing the slider from the (pagri) badge and then bending it over would seem to be very...

Thanks, there's no official 'strengthening' mentioned for 18H and - as far as i remember - for Cambs or Herts, though I'll check as I write Part 2 ! It is possible that a number of manufacturers...

Rob, the official WO RACD ledgers record this sort of fixture for badges of regular units. Thus the earliest was the Conaught Rangers in 1906, the Loyal North Lancs in 1908, the Royal Irish Rifles in...

Yes, I agree - a regular 1911 Pattern officer's HP on a VBn or TF Bn officer's helmet. Nice items but they do not go together. Apart from making helmets, Hobson also made HPs and badges.

Thank you. I realise that I have actually pasted in the obverse of the bladed OSD and the reverse of the looped one ! Ah well, you get a bit of diversity !

In my humble opinion you will a) ruin the badge and b) considerably reduce its value !

Why don't you make a hole in a card or whatever and slot the lugs / sliders into said - measured - holes
