5th Battalion, 1908-1926
1st and 2nd are c 1908-15. 3rd, 4th and 5th c 1915-21. 6th is 1921-6 and 7th is the hybrid dated by K&K to 1927 (though I suspect that date is wrong – I have yet to check it)
[lps] – 30/10 – 30/16 – 41/17 – 37/10 – 39/16 – 35/16

6th Battalion, 1908-1936
1st is Lambourne so almost certainly earlier, 2nd and 3rd are Gaunt and probably post 1stWW, 4th unmarked, 5th slider broken off, 6th has the longest slider but is unmarked.
37/4 – 40/11 – 40/8 – 40/7 – [ ] – 42/11

7th Battalion, 1908-1926
The first six are all with loops (NS and EW) (the 7th is a solid cast ?theatre made example). These probably date from between 1908 to c 1915 – though some may have been sporran badges for the 10th Bn. There were no 7th Bn badges manufactured from 1915/6 to the end of the war.
The two last badges – with sliders - must date from c 1919 to 1926
39/13 – 40/15

8th Battalion, 1908-1922
The first two badges are the earlier ‘thick neck’ type, the rest are ‘thin neck’ types. The slider on the 4h badge has been sawn off and replaced by loops. The slider on the 5th is a (?modern) replacement. The 6th badge is one of the ‘unfretted’ type.

[lps] – 42/11 – 37/6 – [lps] – [repl] – 44/11

17th-20th Battalions, 1915-1921, Pattern 9483/1917.
The WO Pattern of the first type was specified to have loops, thus only this pattern – specified to have sliders - is relevant here. The 1st is marked B P & CO LD. B’HAM, the 3rd badge has had its slider cut down.
37/7 – 35/8 – [ ] – 48/15

Hello,

An interesting point that is illustrated by KLR's post 1908 TF badges, is that badges with long sliders cannot be just indicative of 1903-06 badges.

Clearly long slidered badges were produced at other time periods also.

regards

No, I think that someone was thinking about shortening the slider then changed their mind.

One example being the Queen's Westminster & Civil Service Rifles badge, often seen with a long slider (apologies for the poor picture).

On occasion, the longer the badge, the longer the slider!

Well we've now spent some time scratching and staring at our navels (ie sliders !) but

WHY

do badges appear to have had longer sliders towards the end of the 1st WW ??


Soon, I will be posting some later 'long sliders' but I suspect they might have something to do with the reintroduction of the side cap in the 1930s.
