I agree that it is original. Unfortunately Wee Jimmy does not take to polishing very well. Even unworn, his expression is often one of impending defacement.

All beautiful early badges, not as black as most later OSD tend to be. The E. Riding Yeo. does not bother me in the least. A finely detailed badge.

Indeed, those footed lugs are scary, but the rest of the badge says polished OSD to me as well, and not like any fake that am aware of.
One has to be careful with such lugs as some original badges...

I echo this, and include badge dealers as well as ebay. I gave up on uniforms from the UK and now badges. What with the cost of shipping and unfavorable exchange rate, I can do little.:(

I am quite sure that ebay photo is 1920s as well. As an aside, note the plain Hussar buttons and tailored collar on the 7H chap.

Those are a bit "over the top" so to say. Look more like Frenchmen. Was the 8th Bn. caubeen supposed to be worn with the badge on the right side?

Have never seen those crownless badges before. Even though the arm badge was supposed to be cloth, could they have been as such anyway?

C of E as mentioned. It would be worn on the left lapel and a US disc worn on the right. It appears to be a two part badge, and if it has a screw back, it would date from the 1930s or 40s. If it is...

KRRC trade/qualification badges

Whilst the KRRC had black on red marksman, signaller, etc., old photos show what I assume to be gold as well, at least for the marksman badge. Can this be confirmed? They do not appear to have a red...

Facing color help

All,
Not sure of all the regiments that wore dark green facings as of 1914. I know the DLI did, but there were others as well? It may be that "green" was universal?

Thanks,
