I was watching it but didn't bid on it as I'm more interested in the regular Gurkha regiments.

I am unsure about whether it was genuine, but I believe there were three bidders, so for the sake of...

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.

Maybe it was a reject as the reverse is good until you look at the right hand side which has lost its form.

It depends on how much the seller is asking. If it's expensive I would want good provenance as it does deviate from the classic WW2 pink wing although construction looks similar.

Is it possible that some Tiptaft badges were produced with the slider unmarked, as the badge at the start of this thread appears to be made from the same die as a slider marked Tiftaft in my opinion?

Some nice pieces there, I particularly like the SAS beret badge and the two SAS wings which are typical 1950's in my opinion.

As you say the KC AAC cap badge with a slider is a fake. That pattern is fake pattern and a genuine WW2 KC AAC badge should have lugs not a slider.

Nice badge. Fair play to you Tim, you do turn up some rare Gurkha badges. I also enjoy your posts and looking through your albums which are a great reference.

Gaunt pattern unmarked officers silver plated cap badge. It could possibly be unmarked silver but more likely to be plated as I would expect a Gaunt silver badge to have the tail voided.

I have this example where a different font P appears to have been used. It has three of the flaws as you can see, also yours seems to have the Lion's tail voided.

I think you could well be correct in thinking that your STERLING badge is possibly a very early produced example and that we cannot also rule out the possibility of more than one die being used.

Does this wing have any Royal Flying Corps connection

Can anyone help to identify this wing please and is there a remote possibility that the early Naval arm of the Royal Flying Corps had their own wing before the RNAS hence the red crown?
