There are some very weird ones in the Marsh catalogues which logically must’ve cost more to manufacture than the...

I think what Dean is saying is that instead of 6th Bn DLI using and blacking a standard WM DLI badge, of which there would’ve been lots, they used BB.

The blacking of WM cap badges was not a particularly common practice at all. Off the top of my head I can only think of the 9th and 16th Bns London Regiment found in this finish.

Billy is honest as they come, genuinely a top bloke and very generous too.
