Hi Guys
I don't think it is Worcs but it could also be East Yorkshire. The Worcs OSD badge doesn't have such a 'full' star I don't think.
Cheers,
Alex

Hi Roger
Thanks, that is what I thought it was and I would have expected the PAG button the be a lion over coronet rather than a crown myself, so that just confirms my suspicion.

PAG button

Hi All
I was just given this button and was told it was a very early officer's button of the PAG. I thought it was British but apparently not, can anyone confirm that it is early PAG?
Thanks,...

ATC lapel badge

Hi All
I just acquired this little gem, thought I'd share. Not the greatest condition but that doesn't bother me, I suspect these are quite rare.
Cheers,
Alex

Hi Steve
Stunning badge. It's quite a scarce one from South Africa. I don't think the unit was long lived and probably didn't survive into the 20th century. From Robertson just outside Cape Town.

Hi BC
If that was a District Mounted Troop badge, I would have expected it to be cut-out sheet brass, not a properly made badge. I don't think it is that.
The sheet brass badges may be SA but no...

Stunning button, thanks for showing it. It's very like the Natal Naval Vols button. The NNV was based on the RNAV so may have used the same design on purpose.

PAOLIY Officer Badge

I just saw in this morning's paper that he had been pardoned and was due to be released yesterday and deported but no confirmation if he had been returned to SA yet. Good news anyway.

Hi Jerry
Yes, after I posted I thought they probably never had a slidered badge due to the design but I wasn't near my PC to make a correction... :o

Interesting WAAC badge

Hi All
I just received this badge today. It may be an officer's badge as it looks like it may have been gilded, though if so, it has faded. It is marked Gaunt London on the back and lugged, where I...

Have you tried downloading his service records from Ancestry or Forces War Records? Unless they were destroyed in the war they should shed some light on his service.

I think it is an officer's sporran cantle, seems to be the type still used so difficult to date. Could be recent or 50 years old.
