Default Royal engineers Militia badge

Hi all
Just wondering how the M was fixed on these badges?
Was it brazed or pin typ attachment.
Thanks in advance
Bc

Hello Bc,
Here's a RA Militia badge missing its 'M'.
Note the small perforation, whether for a pin fixing or a braze hole, I don't know.
Tony.

I posted one on the forum a while ago and was told it was fake because it wasn't pinned.
Cheers,
Alex

I have several RE badges with the "M" over 3 reigns and they are both pinned and brazed.

Although you find GVI RE cap badges, I am not sure that RE Militia units would have existed post 1908 other than the Monmouthshires who retained the militia title.

I'm happy with this GVIR officer's militia badge with the blades folded into loops. But not so comfortable with the OR's. It may be right but my jury is out.
