Sweeping Font Rising Sun

A large Rising Sun I picked up recently with striking sweeping font, particularly the asymmetrical 'A' used forward on upper scroll and backwards on bottom scroll. Lugs are footed wire, similar to...

Cap Comforter

I had a cap comforter as a lad which, as I recall, was just an enclosed tube of stretchy material. You pushed one end up inside the other to create an open ended tube (ie a 'hat'), pulled it over...

RAOC Lugs

I have one of these. I believe it to be, at the very least, a legitimate or's cap badge variant, possibly something else. The lugs I believe are a red herring - several corps' badges of this period...

I'm struggling to see much profit in it for them. 300 for 399.00 = 1.33 per badge (in fact less as it looks like they accepted an offer). There may be no overheads, but there must be costs and time...

Excellent Luke! Thanks for that. Somehow always expect braze holes to be rather better done than that. Mike

Cheshire Braze Holes

A lugged Cheshire Regiment I have. Looks like someone has made 4 failed attempts to drill a hole in the back then crudely cut or punched out out a slit. Guessing, like you do, I'd always assumed an...

Fake Rising Suns

This seller seems to be able to change profiles and countries at the drop of a hat, and has been doing it for years. Ebay do nothing. This badge is rubbish and should not fool anyone, and yet people...

Hi Conductor. I notice both your photographed collars are left facing and this was something I was wondering about. Were these early collars actually NOT faced? That would certainly explain why the...

Hi Milmed. Sorry no one else has replied to your query before now - I've only just seen it myself. Re your Ordnance Corps set, I'm pretty sure the collars you have came into use in 1907 when the...

Royal Army Service Corps GRI Cast Badge for ID

Thanks for replies Alex and Hoot. So a known locally/theatre made badge to the RASC with incorrect cipher, rather than RIASC with incorrect scroll. I really must get a copy of that book! Many thanks,...

Royal Army Service Corps GRI Cast Badge for ID

Anyone have any ideas on this one? Cast. Clearly once had lugs (this actual badge, not the copied badge). Slider is an old soft solder replacement but looks to have been well used once done. Came in...

Hi Clay. Thanks for reply. I was wondering Women's Army Corps or recruits possibly. But I'll hang on to it for now and see if anything ever comes to light. Mike

Guyana Defence Force Correct?

Picked this up recently. It seems to be a genuine badge but is it a correct variant? Should it have red and green enamel? Under a loupe, there is no evidence of enamel residue or damage from having...
