Wow, have you got all the anodised they made, excepting those you mention?
I am envious!

Frank,

I have the following and one will cause surprise within the collecting community:

5 INNIS DG
13/18 H
LI
QUEENS
R ANGLIAN
YORKSHIRE VOLUNTEERS
UDR (Gold)
AAC
RAOC
REME
WRAC

And EAST MIDLANDS UOTC
I recently bought this of ebay. It appeared for sale with a photo and having looked at Chris's book I had doubts about it. I bought it for 6. I sent photo's to chris and he believes it to be a genuine badge manufactured by M & B but so far not known in the collecting world.

I also don't have the two non British army badges (MALAY REGIMENT and the War Department Constabulary) but as my interest lies mainly with the regular British army it will not bother me if I can not find them.

Having just written this I await comments

Steve

Thanks for the photo. Lovely little group. If you ever think you could part with it I would be very interested (the Marples and Beasley badge that is)

Theres nothing wrong with the Marples & B marked East Mids OTC, it's just an earlier maker.

For some reason they always seem to be a bit more 'bashed up' than the other makers.

Regards all

Bess

Good to have confirmation, I just wondered why it never made it onto the list of M&B when Chris was collecting information for his book. I must be lucky as the one I picked up is in very good condition. Thanks for showing yours.

Good work Steve, mine look a bit sorry for themselves! I'll keep an eye out for the SASC for you too. I have one but not a spare I'm afraid.

Depends who gave Chris the makers mark information. If they never had one then no information was passed up the line.
I think I have 4 or 5 LI beret badges that don't appear on the list.
