It would be better to have a closer up photo of the Cameronian's lugs. Lincs is probably ok but I don't like the Bucks or XXVI but can't comment on the other two.

Hi Dave

Hood Battalion good or bad

Hi All
Is this badge genuine? It has a Gaunt plate and the badge isn't too bad but I am not 100% convinced it is genuine.

Light Infantry Collar Badges

Hi All
Can anyone ID the regiment that these collars belong to? The lower pair look quite old but the top pair seems to be more modern SP officer collars.
Thanks, cheers,

MC's started to be dated on the rear in 1937 I think. Any WWII MC would have the year of the gazette engraved on the rear.
