Badges with these FN style sliders are quite common as Narborough was a prolific maker. They are not of the best quality, but representative none the less.

As mentioned, sometimes very difficult to be sure. I too think these look OK however.

Actually, the seller can change the postage if you request a revised total at the close of the auction.

The IG "pagri" badge is bad in my opinion, replete with footed lugs. Most everything else looks good to me with the exception of those already mentioned by Andy.

As mentioned, the badge is without doubt that of "The Excellers". I note that the breast pockets of those tunics appear deeper than the standard pleated issue.

This is what you are ideally looking for, but I cannot recommend it for that price. These are not scarce badges and a little patience will turn up another at a much more reasonable price.

That HAC artillery looks a likely fake with the loops cut and the stumps straightened out.
The rest appear OK to my eyes.

It is an OR collar badge, not a cap badge nor an officer OSD, which were the same but larger. The OSD cap badge will be bronzed with blades (tangs).

Well indeed it is made "from" the die as it is cast, but I do concede that it is original due to the weight of the consensus. I must say that it has shaken my trust in British quality however ;)...

On the left appears to possibly be the Suffolk Regt. The right possibly a rifle regiment.

So is this badge genuine? If so, it is a disgrace. Most Indian cast badges are far better than this.

Unless that blade is a slider cannibalized from another Lambourne badge, which I think it may be, it makes no sense whatsoever being there.

Unfortunately I would agree with this. Whilst many OSD badges are a bit on the crude side, this is excessive. Additionally, I have never seen a blade marked in that manner, let alone by this maker,...

Churchill and 5th Cinque Ports uniform

Ran across this video and noted that Churchill is wearing a uniform to the 5th Cinque Ports Bn. Royal Sussex Regt. The tunic appears to be a wartime economy type and the cap badge is assumingly gilt,...

I have never seen an example like that. It appears to be brass and cast, whereas the known originals were in white metal.

They are original and part of the shoulder titles worn by light infantry regiments.
The title of the particular regiment would be worn below.

Assuming for service dress, it would be bronzed with blade fixings. With few exceptions, it is impossible to date...

There was nothing to prevent an NCO from purchasing or receiving a hallmarked badge either. For me, I refer to any of these badges as NCO/officer and make no further distinction.
