Hi Marc,

The only reference I have in my notes, is that a respected dealer has them on his website. I have just checked, and they are still on his site described as such. Now sold.

Is the first badge The Duke of Edinburgh's Royal Regiment (Berks & Wilts). Only ever seen it in Anodised.

The second badge, subject to size could possibly be a DEMS gunner collar badge.

Mystery Badge - Navy ?

Hi,
Does anybody recognise this badge. Not Royal Navy, but with star above and star below the headphones, it would appear to be from some Navy.
Acquired a short time ago from a dealer.
