I am keen to get my hands on a good one. Opinions please. It does not seem to have the faults pointed out by Luke. In white metal.

Hi Nick,
Possibly the best thread on the Cap Badge.

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...e+wight+rifles

I think the one you show is Ok, it is most similar to the Officers Silver Badge produced by Gaunt, I have no date or proof for the badge but do have one similar and a Gaunt badge.

From the above thread you will see comments regarding the centre tower, which is certainly correct on the early and WW1 badges, hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.
Regards Mark

Thanks Mark. Chasing this one to ground is driving me crazy.

Nick
