Smile Grenadier Guards

The Grenadier Guards are one Regiment that have not changed the basic cap badge for other ranks since their inception, so almost impossible to give an exact date to gilding metal badges.

The grenade on the left was worn during the reign of King George V and VI IMHO by OR's.

And how about the grenade on the right? You think it could be a modern one?
