  • Lost LRDG silver cap badge/sweetheart

    Dear Members - rather tragically i have lost an LRDG silver cap badge in its Cairo jewellers box. I was attending the LRDG association lunch last Saturday in London and brought two up to show to interested parties. This is clearly a long shot and it could be anywhere between London and Brighton! Taxis, trains and other relevant places have been contacted to see if it has been handed in. You just never know..some kind soul might do that..or it may turn up on ebay or at a fair one day! Reward def offered if anyone spots it! I am including a picture of it just in case!

      Hi Monty Cassino,
      Really sorry for you. You have to pay expensive price to get it....
      You got it from a seller ?
      You were sure your badge was authentic ? William Darby Jewellery in Cairo took this name in 1950. Before it was Alfred Horatio Darby jewellery.
      This badge look really to the commemorative post war one... just one leg of the scorpion was broken....
      Good Chance

            Unfortunately, this is never a proof of authenticity but a way to get a badge for good ..
            It's easy with the books on the LRDG to find a name and serial number.
            sorry for you

              I found a silver pin which had already shown me.
              The same story.
              Strange is not it?
              Looks like counterfeiters have stocks to sell !!

                  The LRDG badges are not the same but abels are the same and it is the same handwriting ...
                  Serial numbers follow more
                  It's really very strange
                  Can you tell us more about the source of your badge?
                  Have you bought expensive?

                    I wanted to say:
                    "The LRDG badges are not the same but labels are the same"

                        Lost badge etc

                        Just to be clear - i bought two badges together as a pair. i have lost one of them. I have posted the loss in other places probably under different names etc as i have a tendency to do that! Both came from same collection and from a reputable dealer. Here they are together. Harrison and Denniff were mates.

                            Have you others nice items in your LRDG collection?
                            Is it possible to see photos?

                              Both badges are fakes that have been "doing the rounds" for some time.
