Yes, also quite a bit of evidence of loss of definition on the front from polishing but perfect crisp definition on the rear.

I know nothing about these but if it has been re-lugged, I think I would be happy with it. The rear definition looks pretty good to me.

I have never seen a beret badge like that before, it really is an unusual one and beautiful quality by the look of it.

Interesting topic. As far as I know, there were a lot of wings made in Egypt and I have always thought the large differences in stitching were from the theatre made examples. I must have a closer...

Hi Mike
I don't think that wing is South African, though not 100% sure. The SA cloth wings of this style had letters embroidered in red and the photographer wing had 'AP' above 'LF' on it, and it...

Unless I'm remembering wrong, this badge was also used as a glengarry badge with the numerals '79' above. I suspect that this was maybe made with a slider as a pugarree badge rather than for a...

I wonder if it is also missing a Naval LSGC medal as there is also a gap after the GSM. Would make sense if he was still in service in 1956.

Hi Nozzer
Yes, when there are drawings, they are often slightly different, so I tend to accept a bit of artistic licence. I should have said 'not necessarily correct' though. No, I have never seen a...

I am pretty sure the Northhants is an OSD collar which has been converted to a cap badge by cutting off the lugs and adding a slider. You can see where the lugs have been cut off.

I still like the RB badge. I wonder if it was a theatre made officer badge to replace a lost badge?
