Hi Simon,

No idea but many units possibly amalgamated/disbanded before issue. Also, existing stocks of GM and WM badges would have been used up first. Official info on numbers manufactured very hard to find - and I have looked!

Possibly both then but official doco does state that the collar badge was to be used.

Do you have images or is your info anecdotal?

To be honest I feel for the collectors who are being charged such savage prices for a single badge but, if it makes a collection a better investment, then why not?

[QUOTE=hagwalther;275810]Hi William,

Forget about the first two but South Staffordshire [Tudor] was officially authorised - example on page 270 of your copy of book.

Derbyshire Yeomanry did get a CB. No of 3172 but went no further.

1st Rifle Volunteers Royal Devon Yeomanry - prototype at best; fantasy at worse. I go for the latter.

Regard This was only in for a short time in 1957 according to a Capt in the TA unit

Hi Chris,

As a Clifton-dweller, I'd love to hear how you are sure there was only ever one CCF badge ever made?

A friend at work's two sons go to Clifton College and I'm slightly embarrassed to admit I've yet to try to scrounge any badges off them.

Thanks,


David.

What Chris is saying is that he only knows of one example of the anodised badge. I know of at least two possibly,not the easiest anodised badge to find.
They are know badged to the QRL David,so the best youd get is a "motto" from them.

Doh! No idea why I read it as I did.

There are plenty of Old Cliftonians around here so perhaps I'll dig one up one day.

Are you sure about that ? Clifton is in Bristol yet the QRL recruits in the old 16th/5th and 17th/21st recruiting areas of West Midlands/Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire. Ready to be corrected of course but wouldnt make sense to me

Hi Guys,

I'm just back from being 'up the line'.

Hope to get into this again later inc. notes on the Beret size South Lancs cap badge.

Regards

Chris

The Clifton cadet is clearly wearing the QRL badge - no red backing though.

I suspect that no Direct Entry QRL officer has ever come from the Midlands!
