Here it is. Quite a large badge (around an inch and a bit). Another I have is slightly smaller but hallmarked. You'll find a write up of this scheme in "On her their Lives Depend" by Angela...

I meant what I said. It's great to exchange information and discuss ideas. A few months back, I came across the significance of a badge picked up "on spec" off eBay.

Hi Tim

Glad that you liked them. It was a real coup to find out what that badge was and then read up on the background to it.

I meant to add that the NZ Soldiers' Association badge bears the number A115 engraved on the back. This will presumably be for "Auckland" and will be an association number and unlikely to be a...

Hi all

Just the other week, I spotted on the "collector's supermarket" (eBay) one of these badges with its original scarlet armband ribbon! Bang goes my idea of a "hat badge"........196502

Hi Tim

Nice to see the "printed word" on this! So often we find ourselves faced with a "what the heck is this?" badge. I've just possibly IDed a badge from our local newspaper archive based on a...

Been thinking about the posts on these "doubtful" ISBs. A local dealer has some that he says surfaced in India along with some ARP badges that have a look of being cast. There were also some...

Hi JT

Yes, rather suspect that the antique dealer was either deluded or mistaken. Point being that if they had made them in H/M silver, you'd think that at least one or two more would have bobbed...

Still keen to know of anyone has seen any period Imperial Service tablets with additions such as the two I posted pics of. Logic says that if I've got a couple, there must be more out there.

Good point Tim that the MUs were probably always going to be "MU" but would still get "white feathers" from young and old.

Possible therefore that the "owner" was a WW1 veteran who had postwar service?
