Hi Gents,
I can add:-

South Notts Hussars
3rd Carabiniers DG
Royal West Kent
DLI
KOYLI
The Welch Regt
Pioneer Corps (QC - 1st pattern)
APTC (late pattern slider)
RAOC (late pattern slider)
RADC (late pattern slider)
RCT (late pattern slider)
Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (late pattern slider)
5th Inniskilling DG
13/18 Hussars
Green Howards (2nd pattern) - (late pattern slider)
RGJ (late pattern slider)

* by late pattern slider, I mean a marked differance to the very early s&w sliders which were soft font with a shiney rounded edged slider. Later type has a flat slider with a clearer stamped differant font lettering. I'nm sure you all know what I mean.

I'm sure I have some more, but these for now.

Regards all

Bess

Thanks Guys,

Bess, looks like you have been checking out sliders!!!

Yes, the two common are the 'old' and 'new' and I have managed to identify five different S&W sliders so far.

Note that the 'old' is tapered and the 'new' takes on a modern apperance - why is this?

Regards

Chris

One to add to list. Just bought/received a Royal Tank Regiment-RTR anodised badge by maker S&W Ltd (Smith & Wright Ltd) I did not know this one existed so a good find. Unfortunately there is slight damage to it i.e. one lug missing but it will do until I find one in better shape.

I have six (so far) for the 17/21L... number 6 is the odd one out but has a very similar outline shape to the later Shaw Munster.
