Default World War 2 badges

Hello all,

Does anyone know if there's a definitive list of which regiments/corps/services had the so called economy badges made for them?

A few years ago, someone on this board (I can't remember who) was kind enough to provide me with a pdf of an article that he'd co-authored detailing which badges had variants made for them during World War 1 and I was wondering if something similar exists for World War 2.

Thanks in advance.

Steve

Only variants that I am aware of for WW2 economy badges is the variations in the colour of the '' plastic ''
List as K.K +few other Monmouth and A D C comes to mind

Default Plastic Economy badges WW2

Hi Gerard, I don't see the Royal Irish Fusiliers on that list,

they should be there! as they definitely have a 2x part plastic cap badge,

which was sealed on 14th November 1943 K&K vol2.

I'm not getting at you, I know you didn't formulate the list.

best regards John

If you look in my album you will see pictures of most of them and the missing ones are listed.

Alan
Not sure if you had Hertfordshire - again a likely trial pattern, wire fitting at back, not blades. I sold mine through Bosleys in March 2010, along with the rest of my WW2 economy collection. I also had, and include images of, others you note as missing from your album.

I think APTC was lowest number issued and took a long time to find, also Buckinghamshire Battalion from memory was difficult and took a while. Alas I do not have an image of my Highland Regiment.

It was the state of my Army Educational Corps badge that persuaded me to sell all the WW2 economy badges - cared for and kept well, but look at the state of it ...
