I do believe that I have contributed all I can on this thread - I made my point in an early post directly to badger123 for which I was thanked. My opinion remains the same and I have nothing further...

Lawrence - I have one too ! Although recorded nowhere that I can find, I still believe that it may well have existed if only for a brief period. I can't substantiate that other than, like you,...

Bill - You are absolutely right, of course, the point you make is highly valid to the thread and, perhaps, I should have mentioned it myself at the outset. Thanks for the clarifications. Regards. ...

Keith - You are right, of course, but it was an officers' pattern (private purchase) badge not an issued item. At 75.00 that was a cheap cap - did you snap it up ? David

As an addendum let me...

Ry - My original post was an attempt to stop the continual, repetitive, almost eternal questions about the same - the very same - thing. I doubt it will. Regards. David

Bill - I rather suspect that it does as regular, militia and territorial force badges within the same line infantry regiment are different - but are rarely co-related by many who collect. ...

Oh Dave, what an innocent you really are ! Don't you realise that every lug, every slider you attach to a lug-less or slider-less badge is fakery ? The epilogue to my story is that, when everyone...

jdr - I couldn't agree more, if you don't like something, don't buy it - that has always been my philosophy without feeling the need to comment on the character of the seller. Regards. David
