Appreciated

Thanks Mike
Really appreciate prompt response. Just spotted it this morning on EvilBay with some other WWI bits - they look okay and medals attributed to a Bootneck but items do not necessarily...

Just wondering

[ATTACH]209248[/]Mike
Appreciate pictures are not clearest but was wondering if, from what you can see, is this one likely to be a fake?

Ahh that’s a shame

Thanks for the input Simon. I quess another way of narrowing down the correct era would be if I could discover when the size/design of the badge changed.

Whilst initially happy from Ritchie’s...

Dating a cloth badge

I am wondering if anyone who is knowledgeable in respect of cloth badges would be able to determine the era a badge comes from by the way it is constructed?...

KC

I would add that the red & white one features what appears to be Kings Crowns, so that one might be earlier than the labelled ones?

Many thanks

Thanks for that Tim.
The labels that are there predates this regs issue but I am guessing the colours mentioned would still apply. Not sure about the red & white ‘fancy’ one. Can’t find that in...

Red is right?

Thanks Ritchie. If I am reading your post correctly, the one I have is therefore Naval because of the red circle.
It is large so it could well be the right badge for the RMLI medical unit?

Wanted - Royal Marines Kings Badge

From the attached picture the only one I am missing is the Khaki on Khaki drill 1918-1964
I would also like to try and get older versions of best blues and mess dress as the ones in my frame are...

Quick

Thanks Alan - you were quicker than a quickfit fitter there.
Presumably the variations were different regimental bands. Am I right in them being on the shoulder?

RMLI Medical unit

Recently I read a thread on the 'Once a Marine ...' site, and reproduce aspects of it here:
The interesting wedding photo (shown below) has a very poignant quality to it.
The bridegroom looks so...

Wings - but not as you know them

I bought a large bundle of cloth pieces off of evilbay recently just to get one RM badge.
Now looking to clear the rest out and will probably stick them back on where they come from as I have no...

The good, the bad & the ugly

Hi Irv
Not sure on the first one as I don’t have my reference books to hand to check the pattern of the globe and laurel, certainly done more neatly than a lot of the copies of that badge.
The...

SBS

Morning. As far as I am aware they do not wear No1 blues and being a mixed unit now ‘best’ dress is Lovats for Bootnecks and the equivalent for Army ranks. There’s a bronze collar badge and SBS title...

Reply from museum

Bit of a double negative. They feel the badges are both composites from other badges but their collection is too vast to search for which badges, and the museum is shut for 2 years (moving into...

QVC Helmet Plate - good or bad?

This one cost a heck of a lot more than the presentation one but I have my doubts about it now that I have taken it apart for cleaning. To me it looks okay from the front when all together but when...

Another RM badge for interest/comment

Got this one at a local auction. Construction looks good to me. Museum felt hole above GIBRALTAR scroll would be for plumes thus making it Bandmaster’s plate - and that being in glass case with...

RM badge for interest/comment

This one (Iceland WWII) is mentioned in Bailey’s pamphlet and (from there?) in John’s book.
Both cast doubt on whether it existed other than on painted signs.
The pamphlet obviously has a drawing...

John. Grateful for your input. Must admit I thought the first one must be KC plate before lettering isolated and that the obviously added crown/chopped anchor suggested a none official badge....

Oddity RM badge #2

This one is in my collection. Pictured with internee badge for size reference.
Looking in John's book I wondered if possibly early RMLI SNCO cap badge?

Oddity RM badge #1

Belongs to another collector.
The things 'wrong' with this one seem reasonably obvious - anchor chopped off, QVC bolted on (probably at the expenses of GIBRALTAR scroll) and modern globe stuck in...

Kill bars

Could they signify damaged and sunk respectively? Simplistic, pure guess.
