Hi Phil, I have a similar one, due to the thin pale khaki cloth and horizontal gun, I've always assumed it to be late WW1. It could be WW2 but I doubt it, even though some late war stock was still...

Hi, the first pattern Q/C badge appears in white metal and silver. One was hallmarked 1960. Having said that Bosley had a W/M one in his 6th Oct. 1921 auction with a slider so ones suspicions are...

Hi Mick, one collar, lugs east-west removed, hence wire attachment. The title is applique, but very neatly done. The Firmin reference is to the cap badge, best wishes Mike
