Both made by Gaunt London.

Reviving this old thread as I recently also added one of these cap badges to my collection. Also had the S/T for some time but cap badge has been very illusive.

Has anyone ever seen this badge been worn ? i.e. photographic evidence. I have only ever come across one photograph of ratings in the S.A.C.S.C.R.E and can make out the correct S/T but all members were wearing the standard SA Expeditionary Force cap badge (i.e. Bokkie in porthole). Also none were wearing collar badges.

Due to the scarcity of this cap badge, is it possible that it may only have been worn by senior NCO's or Officers? Or possibly private purchase?

Any thoughts/insights on the subject are appreciated
