Thanks. Are they all issue? Clearly the RHG, RY and Yorkshires are. What about the APTC and QDG or was this a PRI buy (I have one but did not show it as I was unsure).

I forgot to upload the RMLY and have now rectified this.

Any idea when the Shropshire Yeomanry badges stopped being current? Could yours be pre-anodised rather than post a/a?

John,

I think that this is the SNCO's abdge you are thinking of. It is lugged. The brass central overlay is affixed in place with a hexagonal nut on a screw post.

Yes indeed Alan it is, you will see that there are at least 3 different versions since it was introduced in the 1990s
http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...hp?albumid=196.

The first pattern is a single piece metal badge. The millenium star silver & gilt and current metal issue are two piece construction with nut/screw post fastening.

I noticed you getting this on on e-bay, that was a good price.

John
