Default Inns of Court - Work in Progress

I am putting together an Inns of Court collection:

Does anyone know if the IC&CY wore an anodised arm badge?

Also if anyone has any spares I would be interested.

Thanks

Chris

Very nice Chris.
I have a black IOC OTC, or is that one on the far left?
Can't make the title out.

That’s perfect thank you Chris.

Assume from where they’re mounted you have them as collars? They’re not, they are actually Inns of Court Reserve Corps cap badges.

The IoC RC were a WW1 VTC and did not wear collar badges but due to their small size and loop fixings they’re often mistaken for such.

See KK1648.

Thanks Luke,

I did have them down as mis-matched collars - as the badge above has VRC on the scroll. My K&K is in Nottingham.
