As I understand it the Footballers cap badge was commissioned by a dealer who is still with us. Very much within living memory and certainly not the 1920s.

Sorry I cannot tell you when these we worn until due to not collecting OTCs. Perhaps Alan or another OTC collector can chip in? Do recall Alan saying it was very small, just 50 members in 1908.

The BB top right is genuine, as is the chromed one. Obviously the chromed badge would not have been worn like that in service as evident from the wear under the plating.

The QVC 4th Hussars is a good fake, I was nearly caught out by one a few years back. You’ll notice the lettering is ever so slightly rounded at the ends, seeding slightly coarse and the loops are...
