Interesting badge and strange as you say that it isn't in the museum's publication, especially as they apparently had an example.

The top three look the best to me, I have no experience of these but they would have grabbed my interest if seen for sale.

In my opinion your beret badge is the same pattern as the officers badge made by Firmin London which was sometimes named on the reverse.

I understand that you do not want to remove the badge but...

I'm not sure on the beret, but the cap badge looks like an officers badge by Firmin London.

Looks good, it's interesting that on the lugged cap badges the H is different to those on the slidered examples.

In my opinion it is a British wing pattern worn from the 60's on. The black backing cloth is missing revealing the inner padding.
It may also have been worn by the NZ SAS but not the Australian SAS....

As already stated the badge is the early voided pattern and is probably genuine assuming it's white metal.

These badges originally had lugs.

It looks like it might have had a screw post fixing at some time, with the lugs added later.

That seems a lot for a hammer price on one of these, catching up with the Parachute Regiment officers HM silver badge.

Thanks Jerry, as I said it's not my collecting field and surplus to requirements, but it's good to know that it is regarded by some as original and genuine.

Thanks Mike, so the SWB one of the very few to be produced by a single maker, making the Smith and Wright and Timmings marked badges fakes?

Hi Gerard, it is the plain reverse and not the slider that I need to clarify on the SWB badge and also whether all genuine anodised badges in general have a plain reverse.

Nice that the flying badge can probably be attributed to a twice decorated senior officer.

Although I cannot offer an explanation as to why there is a KC flying badge on there, but suffice to say it looks to be a very nice example and you did well to get it.

The first SAS badge shown is a fake. The bullion SAS and SBS badge are modern but may be copies. The 2nd SAS title is a fake and so is the "Pink" SAS wing.
