Alan,

All the ones I see appear modern/current issue.

I wonder if the WM version was actually worn pre 1950/60's?

regards

I think that they were adopted post war but the metal ones have been widely faked.

Hi Alan,

As far as I know, and if still worn, the A/A versions of the grenade version of this badge are still current issue as per the 1960's.

Currently and again, as far as I know, there is no authorised 'New Metal' grenade version of the badge for the Honourable Artillery Company although the traditional Crest and Motto beret design for Other Ranks is officially authorised and issued in 'New Metal'.

Regards,

Chris
