I am not sure of the make of this motorcycle but the rider is definitely serving with the Army Service Corps.

West African or a fashion item?

Thank you, all the badges came from across the border in Wales and were purchased as a job lot, although not by me. I bought a single badge from the buyer which I am very pleased with.

Of all the badges in the lot, this is the one that I like the least. it is very flat and I think that the plumes are wrong.

This one is quite thin and not of a high quality, but does have non standard fittings.

1st battalion Monmouthshire Regiment

The one that I am offering for sale is the one at the top of the previous photograph.
