I don't know exactly what Bosley's reasoning is.

I am not sure that Lambournes were a badge maker before WW1 but a wartime contractor who turned their machines to military use.

The Royal Gloucestershire Hussars Imperial Yeomanry cap badge was worn up until 1908. A very nice badge.

Could you supply a link to the page in the auction please if possible??

British Army Cap Badges of the First World War by Doyle and Foster is a good start- they also did a similar book on Second World War Badges. Shop around and you may get a good deal- they are not expensive. Images used are not 100% good badges, but some or the more scarce badges are good examples. Pictures in colour. The bible of badges is still thought to be the 2 books by Kippling and King but these books are expensive- in black and white, small images. Published originally in the 1970s I think. The book by Cox is a good book but does have some mistakes and fake badges shown- also has Australia, NZ, SA, Canada, India etc badges of the Great War. Regards, Paul.

John Gaylor's Military badge collecting is a good entry level book.
