Well almost there just the Officers gilt pouch badge to go. I do have all the rank slides and officers ranks as well. The far red IRs cap badge is the very rare one o ly about 90 made for amalgermation parade. This came direct from a serving QM.

You say that the red OR badge on the far right is rare, so what would an OR wear in their cap if not this one?
