Default Review of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Park Police Bullion cap badge

Hi All

Have found this badge in one of my spare's box. Would be interested in knowing if it is a genuine item or not.

Kind regards

Ron

Thanks for the reply Dave, much appreciated. I suppose the originals are quite hard to get hold of?

When I had dealings with them they only had about 3 or 4 officers and one was a sgt. Southwark parks police had two officers !!

Here is a slightly tattered example that is hopefully original.

Default Thanks

Thanks for both of your replies Michael and Steve.

Looking at my one, it is pretty similar though the backing cloth does seem to be different. Still not sure if it is a copy or not.

Steve, yes very small force. I was looking at the Parks Police service website the other day and they still have only 10 or so officers covering Chelsea and Kensington.

The badge is up for trade if anybody is interested though
