Default Imperial Military Railway Badge

Hi Gents,

I just wanted to thank the forum member (you know who you are) who sent me this wonderful little badge.

A circa 1901 silver Imperial Military Railway cap badge, all the more interesting as it's been converted into a cloak clasp (well that's what it looks like).

It has been discussed on the forum before but I thought I would drop some new pics of it after a light clean. Thrilled with this beauty.

Cheerio,

Roy
