Default Cardiff Pals cap badge

Does anybody know whether this looks like a genuine Cardiff Pals cap badge? The definition to the rear isn't great, but the ageing looks genuine and the badge feels right in the hand. Possibly locally made? It has the ancient "Welch" spelling rather than the anglicised "Welsh" of the regular battalions, so isn't a brass economy badge. Also, I'm not aware this badge has been faked, as most fakes are of the collar badge.

Afternoon.

Looks fine to me and is correct as on loops.

Not a Cardiff pals cap badge but a 16th Welsh (Cardiff City) battalion cap badge.

Regards

Jonathan

Looks fine to me too. As Jonathan has stated it’s 16th Batt’n, not 11th so not a “pals” cap badge.
