Hi Jerry,
T & S were a very early maker of a/a badges from Birmingham's jewelery quarter. There makers mark was 3 conjoined circles with the letters T&S inside. The few badges I have seen from this company all have brass sliders on an a/a badge. Hope this helps.
Best Regards.

Hi Jerry,

I was going to use this company next weekend for the next 'Anodised Aluminium Cap Badges by...'

Turner & Simpson Limited mate - quite rare. Is the mark as a stamp or in incluse relief (in a box)?

Regards

Chris

Hi Jerry,

See previous email and can you provide a piccy.

The three circles sounds a bit odd to me - sounds like Krupp steel works!!!

Chris

Chris, The name is stamped as below:-
The makers mark was 3 conjoined circles with the letters T&S inside. The few badges I have seen from this company all have brass sliders on an a/a badge.

So here is your starter:- Royal Engineers T&S
