The lines are on the tail ends of the 'BY DAND' ribbon. I take it that's a makers variation? Or does it relate to age or anything else? What identifies a pre Great War badge? Regards, Paul.

This cloth S/T was used.
Is it known if there was something similar for the 1 LG and RHG eliments, or did they use the badge used by the Foot Guards?
