I have a Woodward example as well. They must account for the vast majority of these badges.
I must say that they made somewhat crude badges compared to many. I also have a ww1 Northumberland Fus....

Looks to be a fine badge. Blades intact and probably unused.

Scout army badge question

Was the brass Scout arm badge worn on full dress tunics prior to ww1, or was there an embroidered version for this?
Thanks,

All good badges, and the RIF with clipped slider doesn't worry me as it was commonly done on all badges. It may be an early one as they often had quite long sliders and has a nice maker mark. The...

RWF cloth ST, ww2?

All,

Hi Billy,
To my knowledge, there was no collar badge for the KRRC, either for officers or ORs.

I share your doubts about this one. It looks like it was made last week and I have never seen one with this bright yellow and rather sloppy and heavy embroidery.

Date this 4th Division sign

Not sure if this is ww2 or later. It is silk or rayon, not the modern poly material.
Thanks much folks,
