Whilst I agree that a full explanation may not always be warranted, I try to use phrases such as " not genuine in my opinion" etc., and will try to give at least a brief reason; "known fake slider"...

I fully agree. The other soldier is likely from the Rifle Brigade ( or an affiliated London Bn. ) and has blackened buttons as well. I think the Highlander is from the Black Watch.

I thought that was the case too, but saw a silver bullion pair which now I can only assume were for Volunteers/TR?

I agree that this one does appear to be bronzed, even the slider. The only problem is the officer badge was of an entirely different design.
Can't imagine what is going on here.

Otherwise known as "caps, ridiculous" or "caps, shapeless". An unfortunate article of dress in my opinion. As always, surely some that had an FS cap managed to retain it even though replaced.

The 1st Bn. was with the 50th Infantry Div. Photos seem to show what appears to be the yellow on black "The Hampshire Regt." shoulder titles with the Tyneside T's formation sign below. Some may have...

Well, the 2nd Norfolk was stationed briefly in Burma in 1888 before returning to Sitapur (India) the same year and then to Colchester in 1890. Both regular battalions were in India at the same time,...

In my opinion both badges are genuine, although not the finest examples. The I of C collar is probably just originates from one of the myriad of suppliers in wartime that may not have been from WD...

Hi JT,
It is British made of course and my reference to "early" is the date range you mentioned. There were many makers, both large and small, when it comes to officer badges. As I am sure you know,...

Early Queen's officer badge

Certain Corps badges such as the ones you mentioned were also very slow in coming into my collection as well. I suppose my focus was on "sexier" badges and I guess still is; although my collecting...

I have found that RSF grenades, both for the fur cap and Glengarry, are the most commonly found of their type. I can't explain why even QVC versions of them seem to be relatively common; but the KC...

Another good aspect I like about them is they are neither rare nor particularly expensive, with the possible exception of the Munsters and Dubs.

The Guards badges are indeed nice, all Gaunt. When it comes to bladed badges, I don't fuss if a single blade is still present, but both missing I will not have. Unfortunately no repair service for...

I am now thinking that he might actually be wearing the home service white jacket. It has all the attributes of that garment and when looking at the cuffs, they appear thick, not thin cotton.

The entire badge is flattened, including the skull. Strange in that it has what appear to be good lugs that are often found pinched on older badges with short lugs. Even though it does not appear to...

I agree that the RB is a fake. Nothing like what one would expect for an Edwardian silver badge. The lugs have the type of feet that I avoid.

It is a KC, but I do not think these are genuine. Besides, it should be in silver I believe.

According to Uniformology, the 9th did not wear collar badges until sometime between 1903 and 1908. :confused:

It is still nice even though the Ich scroll is gone. I would assume pre WW1 as the full dress uniforms for officers did not completely return after 1914.
