Default RAOC and REME with KC

Hello gentlemen,

i got these two badges in a ot of british army insignia on eBay-germany.
I know, both are common and not rare.

1) is the Royal Army Ordnance Corps with KC, so from 1949-1955.

2) is the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, i still dont know in which period this badge was worn, i guess during and after WW2 ?

I hope both are original, thanks for any comments and help,

Markus

RAOC 'Slim Tonanti' KC Badge dates from 1949 till 1952 when the QC Badge was sealed.

REME Badge dates from 1947 when Pattern was changed, and again in 1952 to QC

Original 1942 Badge is shown below

Like many badges old pattern was still worn till stocks exhausted..

Thanks Mike for these detailed informations !
I already read a lot of posts where concrete dates of sealing and even inventory (?) numbers are mentioned, is there an article or a "pinned" or "sticked" thread where i can find those informations or read more about it ?

Thanks again and kind regards
Markus
