Default Officer badge wants

Hi All
I have been trying to build up a collection of Infantry Regiment officer full-dress cap badges. I am hoping there may be some floating around which are surplus to requirements that members may be willing to part with.

Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry
Norfolk Regiment
The Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment
Gloucestershire Regiment

Cheers,
Alex

I thought both Grenadier Guards and the Glosters both wore/wear bullion embroidered full dress cap badges?
Speaking to local collectors they've only ever seen bullion, with one notable exception, a silver hallmarks badge, which was the property of an officer.

The Grenadier Guards Officers grenade ( bronze ) is mentioned in dress regs 1902, wether they were worn or not is another matter. Silver hallmarked ? i'd love to see that, wrong colour though for the Grenadier Guards imo. I have two bronze grenades one attributed and one on the osd forage cap.

Alex, the Gloucestershire Rgt is a bullion badge.
The DCLI ,in later years used a collar sized badge as the Offs beret and cap badge.

Hi All
Yes, I do have examples of the officer badges of the Guards Regiments. I am particularly after the line infantry regiments at the moment.
Yes, the Gloucesters badge is bullion, so looking for one of those.
DCLI - I would prefer a full sized one if possible
Cheers,
Alex
