It does look strangely crude, but I have never seen fake badges with those type of lugs.
Aside from that, I have never seen such a collection of heavily bulled badges as offered there!

The other tell tale sign that makes dating easy is that collar badges...

Perhaps the seller is aware that his offerings are a bit rich, as they all have make an offer available.
Problem for me is he is charging 20 Quid to send to the US:mad:

As mentioned in another post, ASC is most likely. I had thought possibly Devon, but the shoulder titles and lanyard are more ASC.

My interest is before 1945. As you mentioned, there does not seem to be any hard rules regarding wearing of arm/trade badges on the stripes....or are there?

Can a member kindly explain the usage of Cavalry NCO arm badges, and also trade badges, that were directly applied to the chevrons of BD and service dress blouses?

The "Duke's" collar badges look good. There are several others, particularly some of the Queen's that look ok as well, but can't be sure without closeup pics as mentioned previously.

Yes, the RN did sometimes wear a dark blue band in the Pagri, in just that manner. However, I believe some other units may have as well, in conjunction with badge or flash.

British Indian Army pioneer badge

Can't ID this badge, but it is Indian as it came with a lot. Must be something to do with Pioneers or Sapper and Miners.
Thanks,
