Now this is interesting. What in theory is thought to have been worn and what actually was worn can be very different.
History tells us just as much as we do not know as it does that which we do.

Opinion on this 21st London

Dug this out of my spares box and not completely sure of of it. Perhaps I never vetted it as it is one of the ugliest badges in the panoply of British badges in my opinion....what a stinker. No...

That is one of the better efforts I have seen. It depends upon the skill of the embroiderer to a great degree with these type of badges.

Thanks for that. This came with a small group of good badges and I had suspicion these might be Commonwealth, in this case Canadian.

Of course there is no way to know if it was worn during the war or after, but it is rather scarce with the KC. Bullion beret badges like these do seem to bring relatively high prices, but I have...

Recent SWB and DLI acquisitions

Quite pleased to score on these over here. An economy SWB and Victorian DLI with the Empress of India crown.
Speaking of such crowns, is there a list of which regiments which used this crown?

Brass Cameron Hldrs.

Has any further information come to light regarding these badges? To my knowledge, they were never worn by the UK Camerons. Could they be Commonwealth, or just old errors, fakes?

These date from WW2 (1940) only, but apparently seldom actually used during the war. Probably saw more use post war.
There were no backing plates for cap badges prior this 1940 date. There were,...

The 18th Hussars officer badge with blades is good. It was one of another lot from the same seller that my hallmarked collar badges came from.

Are you sure the badge in question is actually bronzed? The photos would suggest a heavily toned standard OR gm badge.

Indeed, some regiments never updated their crown, i.e., the QO Corps of Guides in India and the QO Oxfordshire Hussars.

Two months in limbo is unacceptable for me, although I think UK to US may be a bit faster.
I like the 3rd Hussars group. The collars always seem to elude me.

18th Hussars HM silver collars

Was fortunate to secure these off "ePay" for a small outlay here in the States, where badges are usually grossly undervalued.
By J&Co hallmarked 1917. Actually much brighter silver than the photos...

Unless I am suffering from Doolally Tap (highly likely), they are two completely different badges, although of the same basic design. The larger apparently is connected with India.

I don't like any of them either. The Seaforth might stand a chance with the unusual mismatch lugs (I can't tell if one is a replacement...), but it is certainly not one of the better strikes.
