Norfolk Yeomanry

Hi thanks for posting the images. Iím not convinced the GV badge is bronzed more likely heavily tarnished. Iím not convinced the GVI badge is right though. Just my opinion mind.

Take care.

Hi Rob

Personally I donít like the GVI badges with loops they are always in a thin yellow brass that is very flimsy and bendy and they are very very common. Whereas the more convincing gilding...

Norfolk Yeomanry

Hi Alan

I support what youíve said the small cyphers were never worn by the NY. Most of the small GV badges Iíve seen are also repro.
