Smile RAMC date

This badge could have been worn any time between 1902 and 1953 officially and possibly longer until the Queen's crown version was issued.

From the look of the slider this badge could well have been on a belt sometime in it's history.

It is a narrow wreath makers variation, considered to be an early badge.

Thank you very much Rob and Thoams. Do you think that it could have been worn during WW 1?

Sorry Thomas.

It would really be a chance to have found a badge of that time ...

Hi Thomas,
Sorry for my English if it was confusing ... I just wanted to say that I was someone lucky to be able to find this badge. They are not common in France, and if in addition it dates from the WW1, it fits perfectly in my collection.
Regards,
JM
