Hi

Although many thousands of miles from "Blighty" I've got a few BL badges but have not seen this one before. I would suggest that the pin-back could have been introduced at a time when suits with a buttonhole slit ceased to be "in fashion".

I've picked up several h/m gold badges including one that has been engraved with an inscription but can anyone explain a silver, not plated BL badge? It's not h/m but has the marking "STERLING" on the reverse.

It was a spec buy from eBay and I half expected it to be plated.
