Formerly I had been prepared to give this dealer the benefit of the doubt, but these blatant objet d' junk have unfortunately turned my mind.

Bad badges on site

A bit perplexed that this well known dealer from Southampton continues to offer what appear to be spurious badges, eg. a newly listed Second Life Guards with solid V and spade lug feet, and a Marples...

A beautiful plate and I must admit I would likely have not noticed the change in the scrolls.
I do have this TA badge that has no "The" at all. Was this unique to the Territorials?

The majority of them look good, but of course it is impossible to access them accurately from these photos.
Close ups and reverses are needed.

What a shock! I just sent Phil some items last May 12! I don't know if he even saw them. A sad loss indeed.

It may well be an Indian made badge, but it is atypical with that hollow back and unusual slider.

I for one have never seen anything like it before. It appears to be the small beret size as worn in the ww2 era and later.
It is a cast badge, not die struck, which is not typical of British made...

Suffolk Regt. Pagri flash

Can't say how "chuffed" I am to have recently received this. Some FSH flashes such as this rarely come about. It was obviously worn and fortunate to have survived. For those unfamiliar with these,...

It purports to be an OSD, but the quality is poor and it should normally have blades. There were no collar badges for the Household Cavalry. Strange things occur during war time however.

Yes, I agree that they are Civil Service Rifles. Definitely not RWY, which wore a very different uniform.

I thought the 3rd KOH collars had all four hooves on the ground, not a prancing horse like that? It looks more like the Northants Yeomanry.

When and how were these variants worn? I can't...

Whilst I have never seen anything like them, they don't look foreign made to me with that type of embroidery. The bobbin thread looks more like British make.

Any further information on this badge? I believe I have seen one for sale at sometime. It must not have been a commonly worn badge.

I am aware that some units wore collar badges on certain forms of head dress, particularly during WW2, but this is a new one on me. It would seem there was a fondness for miniaturization.

The one with red and white dicing is for the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
The red, green and white I think is for the Highland Light Infantry, but not sure about that.
