One thing to look for in genuine Border badges is the gaps around the dragon. There should be 5 holes between legs, tail etc. Less than that and it is likely a fake.

There is a thread in the navy section discussing non-Gaunt made RND badges. If you search you should be able to find it. Can't remember if Drake gets a mention.

First is the economy issue, second the beret badge and last is the bullion beret badge, the bullion one is slightly smaller than the GM version.

Hi Barry
I am not sure but I think you have your badges mixed up. This looks to me like a standard WWII economy issue cap badge and not the FAA beret version. The beret version was a bit smaller,...

What is the size of the badge? A similar one was worn by the Royal Scottish Reserve Regiment, which would be about 2" diameter. The collar badge size one on a doublet is probably smaller.
