While I am not particularly familiar with this badge (among the worst designs in the panoply of British badges in my opinion :p), the slider does not look very good.

Where does this one fit in? Or is it an entirely different badge? These dragons confuse my aging mind.....what is left of it.

The Artists on the far right might stand a chance, but the reverse needs to be seen of course.

The front of the badge in question appears to have the remains of silver plating or wash to my eyes. Whatever it is, it does not seem to be fake of any sort.

It is unusual and somewhat crude, along with the blades, which are usually associated with OSD badges, which it is not.

I think that is a good badge. I have a post 24 Queen's with a longish slider as well. I would attribute it to just a maker's variation. Long sliders are often misinterpreted as Pagri badges, when in...

It's your call. I feel quite confident that it is just corroded and would clean it up to preserve it.

Not really sure that badge was blackened. I have seen quite a few badges with strange corrosion and patination that can be mistaken for blackening.

I think we are reading too much into this tail business. Makers variations and voiding is the situation here; no significance other than this in my opinion.

I might add that those clips were often dispensed with, if issued at all. A good idea that never really caught on.

The cap is from the interwar period, or even into ww2; not ww1. It is missing the leather chinstrap, but otherwise appears to be a nice cap, being that Indian made examples are somewhat scarce.

Saddler/Harness maker badge

I am confused as to what range of ranks wore these badges and for which regiments. Were they worn only by privates? I read somewhere that it was not worn in the Cavalry; rather strange.:confused:...
