Steve,

despite all the debate about who did or didn't wear it, it is a wonderful, original piece of history. I would certainly like a similar one in my collection.

It seems to be an officer's pattern. One of the ways of telling that an O.R.s badge is a good one is the presence of small flowers amongst the grass. I am not sure if this applies to the officer's...

It seems that there are very few of these tallies offered for sale and that they do indeed have both flags. Are their any known photographs of them being worn by the crew? The Mauretania had similar...

I wonder if it is actually part of a 1950's boy's toy or something given away with a comic. It could be an accessory to a toy secret agent's cap gun, 'shoot the gun, wear the badge' sort of thing.

Luke,

thank you for posting the link. I have taken a couple of photographs using the table lamp on my desk. Whilst they are not brilliant they clearly show a lot of detail on the ship.

Paddy,

agreed that we can never be 100% certain but as they came from the family it is certainly very likely. Unfortunately they had no photograph of Henry Baker in his uniform, as I would have...

The original owner was clearly in the Drake battalion and served at Ostend, Gallipoli and in France. It is conceivable that he lost his original cap badge and later bought a fake to replace it. But,...

I have read many threads...
