Default Cloth Insignia I like South Wales Borderers

Hi Team

I have added to my collection "Embroidered insignia I like", which really can encompass any embroidered insignia,RN, RAF, Auxilary, blazer patches etc..

These are literally outside my knowledge in a lot of cases.

So with that said I will be listing some embroidered insignia that I would like to know more information so I can document and database them.

When could these have been issued, what were they designed for , the construction , the colour, are these meant to be part of a tapestry?

The firt SWB is 170mm Dia: Grey sphinx Green SWB letters

The second is 120mm Dia. White Sphinx yellow EGYPT letters

cheers

Phill

Beautiful items! I think they are privately made civilian handywork by a skilled embroiderer, and not issue badges if any kind.

Thanks Jerry,CB

Would these have be WWII era or are they post war embroidered.

They look so clean and bright as if they were made yesterday!

cheers

hard to date these Phil, they might even be great war as many were made then I believe and condition is all about storage, but I could not date them with any certainty. The second of the two truly is stunning and might be a professionally made item as cb suggested, though the first looks typical for the hospital made types imo.

Thanks Jerry

I appreciate all the information as I find these are wonderful pieces of embroidery, that represents a specific time in history that is seldom covered me thinks.

Hoping more info will come forth.
