Default Royal Northumberland Fusiliers anodised collars

Does anyone know if collars to the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers were ever made in a/a.
Cheers
Mark

Is Wood refering to anod. al. RNF or RRF pattern collar badges?
The Fus Bde standardised on Cap badge, collar badge and button (as you'll know).

Yes there are anodised alluminium collars for the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers. They are vertical (as the cap badge) and also with the grenade flames horizontal (I.e. at 90 angles left and right).

Definitely seen and held both - been on my wants list for many years. I do know who has them ( on this forum).

Having seen the badges of 'Jock' Forbes Burn, yes. Also they were issuing non 'Royal' collars as late as 1944.

Yes according to Wood - but I've never seen them. He states:

"1956-59(?) D Company (TA) Soldiers. Bi-coloured anodised aluminium (staybright) grenades of the cap badge type 180*. Vertical left and right. Worn on the No.2 dress jacket. "

'180' refers to the usual ano cap badge.
