Thanks for that, the matter has become much clearer. I have had that BM badge knocking about for years and had assumed it to be genuine even though officers were to wear them. Shame to relegate it to...

Bedfordshire Yeomanry

I have these examples which I believe are good. In another thread, Luke is of the opinion that a lugged all GM version shown is genuine, which leads me to some confusion as I had expected the GM...

I see by the close up photo that the binding and ribbons are silk. A nice officer's Glen. I think the confusion that people have here is in regard to WD issue uniform items and officer private...

The Seaforth Hldrs. had bronze OSD collars as well, and I now recall that this is indeed a collar badge. It would seem they were not worn for long, if at all.

No one seems to know just what the top left brass badges were for. I have read of many theories, but nothing conclusive as far as I know. The top right looks to be a possible restrike. Bottom right...

I think you have to specify the time period and form of dress for a more accurate answer.

I do not know this badge, but it certainly is not for the Sporran. Some form of headgear badge. It is indeed bronze and a very nice piece, whatever it is.

I have to wonder why they decided upon those production figures? 30,000 Welsh Regt and only 5000 Dorset.
A 7th or 10th Hussar must be a very scarce find with so few authorized for production.

I see now, that is a polished cotton binding, not synthetic, which was just a custom feature used by the private maker. That is not a WD issue Glen. Again, it could date anywhere from WW1 to WW2. A...

The Cheshire is a good older badge with the lugs gone and replaced with a slider. The Queen's looks OK and I think the W. Yorks is OK as well, but a poorly made badge. The WW2 Cheshire is OK.

It does not have typical Indian made features, particularly that British made slider. I don't know what it could be, but likely some fantasy piece.

I agree the R. Sussex is suspex,:p or suspect. Not a big deal as these are very common badges and easily replaced with a good one.

Reverse my appraisal of the Lincoln Yeo. It has the die flaw above "manr" which is thought indicate a genuine badge.
