Hi All
Is this badge good or bad?
Thanks, cheers,

Hi Alex,
Full title FANY were WWI era and should be bronze. I think this is one of the fake ones. Stand to be corrected though.

When I've seen them up for sale bronze seems to be listed as officer's

FANY are unique in that they don't have officer and enlisted ranks. The badges are bronze. Their career and rank structure, being unpaid volunteers, is unique.

Very fake. One courtesy of Mr Marsh.

I have the attached 3 First Aid Nursing Yeomanry badges in my collection.
The 1st is Bronze with lugs (possibly a collar badge??) No maker name.
2nd is Bronze, slightly smaller then the 1st but with blades and marked JR GAUNT LONDON.
The 3rd is GM (brass?) with lugs and a smooth back that is maker marked FIRMIN LTD.
So are we saying that the 3rd badge "could" be a repro??

The badges in picture one and three are repros. Coarse seeding and rounded letter ends etc.

I concur, one and three are repro's of FANY badge c.WWI

#2 is genuine but later period when they became "Womens Transport Service"
