I think it is still realistic to collect original examples, but, to actually collect them all is now time consuming and certainly expensive, to complete a collection would be very hard indeed these...

Odd looking badge, from the photographs, I would think it is not contemporary to the period that the RFC was extant.

I think it is certainly worth noting that the ranker's brass cap badge was issued before the formal end of the war, from May 1919 to some, though not to all and that the "first" RAF embroidered cap...

Just from the photographs, I would have said a fairly typical example made from the wrong materials and manufactured in a different way than the originals, which are not that common.

Just from the photographs you have shown, I would say that all are of more recent manufacture and post date what they pretend to be.

As I don't know the condition of those concerned, very clearly, it would be unwise and very unfair to comment upon any admission to hospital, I would assume it had been necessary.

I missed this thread in 2015, but, I have seen several of these badges before, in my opinion, you have certainly been "duped" if it was sold to you as an original badge, the regiment never worn those.

I wonder how many of those have ended up in mature collections, originally both sold and bought as original.

The badge on that colour plate is more or less the same, so I don't think we have to debate this any further, I would certainly now assume 12th Lancers Number 1 Dress post war.

The Victorian glengarry badges are often found with three copper lugs, Gaunt made very fine examples, but, they were lugs rather than the croquet type wire hoops for HPC's as in this thread.
