Yet it does not seem to stop people buying his wares, I dare say it would simply come down to wanting a particular item he happens the have.

Does he really need a tippet badge, to be quite honest if it were me, I think I would, but, cap badges tend to be a little less expensive although not relevant in this particular case.

Yes, many thanks, I mentioned that in post seven, but, you do see this quite a lot with members of the 1st Battalion, something that I had never really thought about until now.

From the photographs I don't think I would be happy with either of those, in particular, the first example which appears to be brand new.

My thoughts remain unchanged, the white metal badges are very common and I would be surprised if this sergeant was not wearing such.

I have to agree, it is a pity that after extra time, in the event of a draw, the match cannot be decided upon the number of cards given, rather than a penalty shootout.

Footy!

Really gutted by the result pf the match at Wembley last night and feel for the last man standing, who was just nineteen I think, but, hopefully they will learn and come back stronger in the future.

A good badge, you are certainly in the ball park with that example, before that, you were a long way off.

Both the manufacture and materials used are wrong for WW2, but, at a glance it is more obvious than that, the shape is also wrong for that period.

That particular badge was worn by members of the British Army for over a generation, you would need to actually know the identity of it's original owner to be able to answer that question.

Very many thanks, that is certainly very interesting, you do see members of the 1st Battalion wearing black buttons upon SD for example, not really something that I had even considered before.

They are certainly very handsome badges, your example is particularly nice though, simply because it retains it original lugs, a great many do not.
