Yes, that was my thought. Something to prevent sunlight reflecting off the badges and giving away their position?

Hi Andrew
Was the b/m badge a collar for 3TS or did they wear it with a tartan backing on the Tam o' Shanter?

Hi All
I just saw this post. I have a bunch of these brooches with just the ring at the top. I am fairly certain they were watch chain devices for fob watches rather than for hanging on a...

Maybe somebody in self isolation will find a long forgotten example of one of my wants and decide they need money for black-market toilet paper....:D

Yes, also quite a bit of evidence of loss of definition on the front from polishing but perfect crisp definition on the rear.

I know nothing about these but if it has been re-lugged, I think I would be happy with it. The rear definition looks pretty good to me.

I have never seen a beret badge like that before, it really is an unusual one and beautiful quality by the look of it.

Hi Mike
I don't think that wing is South African, though not 100% sure. The SA cloth wings of this style had letters embroidered in red and the photographer wing had 'AP' above 'LF' on it, and it...

Unless I'm remembering wrong, this badge was also used as a glengarry badge with the numerals '79' above. I suspect that this was maybe made with a slider as a pugarree badge rather than for a...

I wonder if it is also missing a Naval LSGC medal as there is also a gap after the GSM. Would make sense if he was still in service in 1956.

Yes, when there are drawings, they are often slightly different, so I tend to accept a bit of artistic licence. I should have said 'not necessarily correct' though. No, I have never seen a...

I am pretty sure the Northhants is an OSD collar which has been converted to a cap badge by cutting off the lugs and adding a slider. You can see where the lugs have been cut off.
