Hi Gents,

Found this while trying to research mine I picked up. Lots of differing opinions here, mine has what looks like a thin solid bar going across to solder the two together. I'd appreciate your opinions, either way!

Cheers all.

The components certainly look to be original. The constuction is interesting, but as these are reputed to have been made up in workshops, I don't see why not. I would certainly keep hold of it.

I will add that contemporary images of this badge would appear to be very rare, which is not surprising really.

An earlier thread by Longshanks did show the badge in use http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...ad.php?t=27087 but it would seem that the "RND" title is applied to the front of the badge instead of joined to the bottom as all the badges in this thread show.

It would be interesting to see if anyone can come up with some more images of this badge being worn so that types of construction can be compared.

I like it as the title is a correct one which has had the lugs removed unlike the modern repro. I see no problem with that style of construction as they were not official but converted locally so there is no single sealed pattern.
