Hello,
Here are two badges, one solid, the other fretted.
Note position of the lugs.
Comments welcome on when, where, and who wore them, thanks.
Cheers, John

To add to my question,
Did officers and men wear specific badges, or were these badges worn by all?
Thanks, John

No idea but it's a nice badge. Is it silver?
Cheers,
Alex

Hi Alex,
Thanks, I suspect it is silver, going by the black tarnishing on back.
Cheers, John

Hi John,

There were definitely officially badges for Officers, Warrant Officers and other ranks. I have an article on these somewhere. I feel that the silvered badges were most likely officers, but don't remember them in the article. If I remember correctly gilt was for officers, bronze for WO's and white metal for other ranks.

Regards

Andrew

Hi Andrew,
Great collection you have, thanks for sharing.
I recently acquired a large hat badge to the SAC.
