Thumbs up Brilliant!!!

I hope you publish it - Your last work was excellent. You would think most public libraries would want a copy for their reference material.

Best wishes,

Drew

Royal Pakistan Engineers

Can anyone provide a reference as to the date range this badge was worn. Although Pakistan achieved independence in August 1947, it remained a dominion until March 1956. Thanks.

The London Regiment

The London Regiment was established in 1993 as the only Reserve regiment in the Guards Division. Do they have a distinct cap badge (same as their emblem).

Three Lugs on Cap Badge

Here is another one - I've never seen a cap badge that has three lugs at the East, West and North....I thought I would go this way in lieu of N, E, W. Although, this is "NEW" to me.

Royal Engineers Pagri?

Has anyone seen this one before. Looks to be locally made (sand cast). There is a very weak "London" stamp on the top right side of pin; a possible hint that something may not be correct.

Thanks,...
