Fantastic acquisition. The embroidered badges are very hard to find.

I passed on an enamelled coloured capbadge to the SAR a few years ago, any chance I missed a good one? I have never seen another enamelled badge to this regiment.

Very nice find, I dont suppose there is a name inside "Currie, D."?

Bah! An obvious fantasy piece: the mountains look like oak trees and the field of wheat looks like a field of worms. I think you'd be embarrassed to keep that in your collection. You should give it to me to pretend to give to Bill Miller, I, er... he embarrasses less easily

Wonderful find Jim. Do you happen to know if the seller has anymore lying around that they wish to dispose of? LOL

2 thumbs up Jim! Mike, I've seen a frosted gilt and silver officers badge which was good, an enamelled one; maybe?
