Hi SimonUK,

That's a nice looking badge, it does appear in Cossum's book on the "Rising Sun Badge" on the front page but with out description or comment and it does not appear in any of the subsequent illustrations in the book and I cant tell if its enamelled or not.

By the look of it, it is of collar badge size, ie about 38mm across the scroll ends. Nurses throat badges and ones for the ladies slouch hat have pins as do some sweet heart badges. However the book does not show a similar badge with the stars over laid on the suns rays.

Could you please tell us what the lettering on the back is as its not readable.
