The rank may be for a Squadron Leader with the middle braid removed. The two stripes seem a bit far apart to me. Maybe try looking closely to see if there is evidence of an extra braid having beej...

Looks silver to me. Are you sure the overlays have not just come off there badge? The right pennon when looking at it looks like something may have been fitted.

Hi Andy
Ok, I understand what you meant now :). The badge has a raised ring which locates the enamel disc. The ring looks original to the badge but the tabs do look hand cut to fold over. It is a...

Could be an officer's badge. Here is mine, which I believe is an officer badge. The detail on mine is a lot better than your example, and the St George should be pinned on.

Coldstream Guards WO cap star

Hi All
I recently found this CG WO cap star. It appears silver or silvered with a red enamel backing to the cross, but without the voiding on the motto. Is this a variation or a sweetheart brooch or...

I don't really like either of the Norfolk badges or the West Yorks. Also agree with Alan on the Suffolks.
Brittania looks wrong on the Norfolks and the tabs for the scroll on the West Yorks look...

Don't know about the TA example but the other two look fine. Bladed one looks like a full dress gilt example.

Unfortunately the XXII Dragoons is a repro. The numerals should be voided and there should be a void between the 'D' and the scroll.

Not Royal Fusiliers, Royal Scots Fusiliers in post #33. I would like a second opinion but I would pass on it. I don't like the lugs or the colour.

Hi Bill
Thanks. Looking at the embroidery, the 'D' definitely looks newer than the other letters.
