Default Prison Service Chief Officer Cap Badge variations

This may be of interest to some, 3 variations of Chief Officers Cap badges.

1. GVI Gold wire on Black

2. EIIR (AA) Silver wire on Black. This is new to me, never seen before.

3. EIIR Silver wire on Blue. This was last worn about 1988.

Does anyone have any other variations?

Regards
Steve

Destro,

Here are some of mine.

Mine date from circa 1975-1988 your round ones are much earlier very nice.


Last item below was produced and worn for a short time when service went from French Blue introduced in the 1970’s back in to Black in 1988 at the same time Chief officers were being fazed out.

Regards

Stephen
