An excellent discussion. What collecting should be about!

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

Hi all

Thanks for the ideas on this wee "mystery" that has kept me thinking for many a night (and day!).

Hi

I may still have somewhere a shoulder title that is for "T5/flaming grenade/ LF" but with the "arms" of the "T" broken off. It was one of those "badge belts" but also had an unbroken T5/LF...

Hi

Many thanks for that. So I was right about the "PLOTTER" bit, but just got the wrong period?

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

I can't swear...

Just seen the earlier pictures of the badge and the small round badge is likely to be the Old Contemptibles/ Wales badge.

With a keen interest in lapel badges, I'm interested to know what badges we can see on the left lapels in the first photo. It appears to be small and round.

Hi Michael

Thanks for your message. By saying "north-south" that was my way of saying "top to bottom". I'll check my Old Contemps badges over the weekend and see what is there.

Hi

In my opinion a later issue of this badge. The numbers are "sans serif" whereas my examples are serifed and usually have a letter (A;B;C).

The "half-moon" clip on most badges is bronze and...
