Default Charles III cypher

The King's cypher has been revealed. Tudor crown replaces the (Queen's) St. Edward's crown. I wonder if the military will issue new badges immediately or if stocks of the Queen's crown badges will be left to run out. Could be a costly exercise.

I am sure the changes will take time, with certain organizations, military and civil, to have some precedence.

I'm not sure changes will happen. Has it been written officially anywhere that badges etc will change? I think given the massive cost involved that governments may not change insignia etc.

I had made this query as well. Although some changes must be made, I wonder if some may be dispensed with due to the cost.

Several new Kings Crown badges appearing on ebay, I presume that none of them are "issue"?

Hi Rob,

The RAF officers badge is a real piece of s**t. It's the same fake King George one that he's always sold, he's just trying to cash in.

And he sells exact the same at the same moment but with a different title
