The only Ludlow badges I have are marked LUDLOW LONDON
though I think I've seen a L&Co on a DLI badge. They changed their name from Ludski to Ludlow in 1933.

Worn between 1963 and 1967 (CB 3083 in 1963 CNN). Existing stocks were probably worn by the LUOTC from 1967 until 1971 when they got the unseeded type (Patt 20302/1971).

There is a Jennens 'rubbings book' amongst the Gaunt archives at BMAG - sorry, I only looked at the Infy badges.

also 'back dies' on J&Co badges are quite distinctive.

It looks like good value but it does it reference the original WO Pattern numbers etc ?
