Not sure if there are any decent pics showing an un-voided AA badge with Dorsetshire scroll.

Whether voided or not, an original, AA Dorsetshire Regiment cap-badge, with Dorsetshire scroll, in good condition is an ȕber-rarity, with less than a handful of known examples.

Unlike Dorsetshire scrolled badges, the Dorsetshire Regiment badge with Dorset scroll is a common badge.

AA Devonshire Regiment badge can often be picked up quite easily for probably around 20.

Cheers

William

Attached below are pictures of my unvoided Dorsetshire badge.

Mike - as the picture you attached of the voided version is a bit small, how sure are you of the authenticity of that badge? Just curious, no aspersions being cast.

Paddy ,you seem to be going blue. Are you having trouble breathing ?

A fellow member bought one at War and Peace a few weeks ago.

My Dorsetshire image came from the same person that sold me the large Liverpool UOTC badge years ago. I never realised that there was two versions of the Dorsetshire until I saw the ebay one.I also have an image of what appears to be an unfinished all siver one(non voided).
