Yes Noxin - loops for that die. Not sure about the last one.

Thanks Alan, I had thought that loops were more useful on a 1920s side cap, GS cap or beret - though the slider was used with a clip from the 1940s. Maybe the loops on scroll (ie low) for a peaked...

After looking at my notes, RC is probably Robert Chandler.
I think most of his productions - all brooches but most are the same size as the Lpl Pals badges.

Yes, I think that's right ... but that Pattern badge was worn up to 1964 (even with its KC !).

The cap / caubeen Lpl Irish badge was authorised as Pattern 11390/1939 on 16th December 1939.

It is actually a very good unmarked Firmin badge. Good value !

Here is a Lt Col or Col (can't remember when he was promoted) of RAMC c. 1941 wearing a side cap. It looks like a dark blue colour - or might the upper bit be RAMC maroon ???
