Default Manchester Regiment A/A

More help wanted.

In eBay there is an anodised aluminium silver Manchester Regiment with slider stamped "Smith & Wright Ltd". I would like confirmation please that S & W manufactured this badge.

Thank you

Ian

Ian, both examples are not particularly uncommon but tend to hold their price.

There are anodised collars too, for your info.

All the best

Bess

Bess, thank you for the information. This particular A/A badge seems to be one of those that commands a higher price. One recently went for 45 from an online dealer.
Best regards,
Ian

They are certainly 30-35 at auction. One of the harder pre 1970s infantry to find. I suspect that many have been discarded by people who did not know what it was. Mine I bought in a Cardiff arcade for 5 in an odds and ends box in a medal dealers shop.

Alan O thanks for your reply. I shall continue my quest. And it is the plainest looking badge as well.
Best regards,
Ian

Happy to say that I was the winning bidder for the Manchester Regiment A/A by S&W. And I got it for a reasonable price. Thank you all for your info.
Best regards
Ian
