This is the badge in question. It was sealed in 1955 for the Monmouthshire TA in gilding metal. By the time the School adopted the dragon cap badge in the 1960s, a/a would have been the norm. However there is no certainty whether the school wore g/m, a/a or both. They now wear cloth.

Hi Alan,
I noticed you have amended the list as you previously stated this as a 3rd Mon badge.
This badge as been previously covered on the forum , the badge was worn by the 2nd Mon in 1954 brass and A/A from 1965 . The Monmouth school were granted permission to wear the badge from 1968. So they would have only worn the A/A version unless they had a private purchased and bought a brass one.
The school also had blue and yellow Beret badge introduced in the 80's.
The school changed to Green and Yellow with the change to the Royal Welsh.
