Default a/a King's Liverpool cap badge

Hopefully King's Liverpool and not Liverpool Uni OTC.
Comments welcome.

Actually both. But yes it is the one worn by the TA Bns and the OTC in the 1960s.

Tony,

I have a theory, which is still to be confirmed or otherwise, that this badge was also worn by Liverpool Institute CCF

Hi Tony,

It is the earlier version with the seeded scroll and also earlier (for A/A badges) Gaunt mark so no harm in saying it is King's Liverpool.

Regards,

Chris
