Of course. This was sold in a CT auction a few years ago.

Thanks Alan. I thought I might have an image of the earlier cap badge on a 1cm grid but I've not found it. I did find that one was on Buywyze in 2014 for £450. Regards, Paul.
PS just checked, they look to still have it, lugs looking to have been moved to North, South.

I suspect the N-S conversion was for the sporran. Overpriced in my opinion and the end-date can now be corrected to 1918 without fear of contradiction..

Default Measurements

Here is my badge fitted with original E-W lugs and measuring 65mm (height) x 50mm (width). It certainly didn't cost me £450 even though I bought it some time ago.

Regards,

Lovat

Thanks Lovat for the measurements. Larger than I thought. Regards, Paul.
Found an old thread I had forgotten about. https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ighlight=laing
