Default Worcestershire Hussars

The repaired lugs aside, I don't know what to make of this badge. Note the lopsided crown, rather poorly defined lettering, and the small hole that goes through the center of the flower.

Thumbs down from me. The badge was worn in WW1 but the regt wore RA badges in WW2 (officers did not) so you see a lot of fakes but few originals.

As suspected. Thanks Alan. Does anyone have a pukka badge to show?

There’s a few genuine dies for the BM badge inc. the same die as per my GM and WM versions attached below.

Have another BM makers variation in my Yeomanry 1914 album.
