I don't think Fattorini made regular army badges - though they produced home volunteer units etc in the 1st WW. In any case they are still in business.

The Glasgow Museum has a collection of the new TF badges in the area - sealed in 1916. The quality of these badges is very poor - probably made in great haste, not surprisingly !

This purports to be an "all GM" badge. Certainly 12,000 were made in 1916. Gaunt never stamped their name - certainly not on an "all GM" ! However, some maker's marks have been stamped on original...

Apropos the previous post - it is known as a brocage - meaning that it has stuck to the die and gives the double impression as Griff notes.

I'm lucky enough to have been given - by a retired King's man - his collar badge (with horse to our left) that he wore on his beret.

I've heard of other regiments doing the same.
