Default Fake

Not military but interesting in one of today’s papers
A conman who sold fake car badges must repay£554.000 or go to jail after a probe by Lancashire county council
It would appear if their is the will to posecute results can be obtained
1/2 million no small fine

Happy to see there is some justice!!!

More than a lot to pay for a fake, I mean selling them!!! Hope it gets a lot of publicity and other conmen hear about it.

and that's why you don't see Firmin marks faked that often whilst the companies that no longer exist or marks are changed so they are not the same as the originals (JR Gaunt.London) are prolifically faked.
