Default Liverpool Pals Cap or Collar ?

Good evening all,

Would I be correct in thinking the attached is original and an officer's collar badge as opposed to a cap badge ? And if so, would this pattern date from 1914 and be produced throughout the war ?

Cheers,

Mike

Cool Liverpool Pals Cap or Collar

Evening all,

I'm guessing there are no LPs enthusiasts to offer any thoughts ? Two recent posts now and dissapointingly, no replies

There are Liverpool pals collector's here, but I guess they are not online since you posted, I have had questions answered months after they were asked.

To my eyes it's an osd collar as the legs have no gap, but I am not a collector to them.

Always difficult with b and w photos but it doesn’t look like bronze badges being worn in this picture.

Good evening Peter,

Yes, I see what you mean. Perhaps the officer 2nd from left, middle row.....do his 'collars' seems darker than his cap badge ??

As you say, difficult to tell in b/w.
