The book shows the badge, but there is not a picture of it being worn. I have searched the net for a pic of the 9th and 11th Herts Cadets 1930 to 1932 but have found no images online.

Women's Land Army.

I would like to check the authenticity of these badges please. I am happy with the flat backed one. The other I have seen described as a later economy issue. Is that correct ?
