As far as I know, CO'S didn't wear their rate badges, just their rank, ie: 3 buttons on the cuff. Other than that, as far as I know the RNR & RNVR rate badges were the same as RN.

If he was Australian would he not have had an Australian Service Medal ribbon as well? Looks made up to me.

5th VB had the 5 numeral, but it was short lived and not the same as the 5th war raised battalion.

WOII / CSM Badge ID

Hi All
Could anyone tell me who would have used this, maybe police? It definitely has some age, I would guess pre-war at least.
Thanks, cheers,

Thanks everyone. I can't tell age but I am fairly sure it was once gilded as there seems to be shiny bits in the corners of the stepped edges.

Hi Steven
Great, thanks for the info, I definitely had my doubts that it was Spanish-American War :D
Whether WWII or later, it is definitely a quality piece.

Red Cross badge

Hi All
I just got this small Red Cross badge, about 15mm across. It was listed as a Spanish-American war US Army medic badge. Any chance that it is? It looks like it may be silver.

Hi Mike
Thanks. Yes, it is odd. I have one cross belt in my collection and this fits nicely in the conical holder and has the securing clip, so must have had a similar origin.

Beaufort whistle

Hi all
I just picked up this crossbelt type whistle in brass, possibly once gilt as it has some bright patches. I know they were worn in silver and WM, but did any regiments have GM or gilt fittings...

The Bedfordshire Reg only became the Beds & Herts after WWI, so this pattern is unlikely to be found with lugs.

Is that a fullstop hidden in the black stain on the slider? If so, it is likely a fake.

The front looks odd to me but the backing appears vintage.
Probably genuine, maybe tailor embroidered?
