I can't find the last auction that it was in but I think Bosley's sold one a couple of years ago. I would add that their OTC badge consultant is often incorrect in some of their IDs.

John

Thank you for the work. In light of all of the other examples, it seems likely that there was a re-badging to MGC on merger with the other Yeomanry Regiment.
