Default Queen's Westminster & Civil Service Rifles

Good Evening Gents,
I've just picked up these nice badges & I'm wondering what the smallest could be, it is hallmarked silver 1941 dated & made by the Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd, it has one screw post to the rear with a nice silver backing plate, it came with the bladed cap badge and the middle sized badge which is silver plate & made by Gaunt. The Gaunt one measures 30mm x 32mm & the silver one is 26mm x 26mm on the plate. I'd be grateful for any info on either of the 2 smaller badges, thanks in advance,
Wilf.

I think these are mess dress collars Wilf. Overlay it on the one in Churchill to see if it's the same size.

Default Hallmarked silver item: The Queen`s Westminster`s, The King`s Royal Rifle Corps.

Good evening.

The hallmarked item is the Mess Dress collar badge: see Churchill 1969 and 1970. Found with various dates.

Should you wish to sell it for a good sum, send me a PM.

Enjoy.

ST.

Thanks for the replies Gents, great to get them identified, should have looked in Churchill's first I guess If I do decide to sell I'll let you know ST, likewise Dave, if I do decide to give it away I'll get the wife to lock me up
Cheers again lads,
Wilf.
