Default Warwickshire cap badge dates

Good Afternoon,
Does anyone know what time period the Warwickshire constabulary bear and scroll bladed cap badge was used from,to? And was it general issue to all lower ranks?
Thanks
Bilyh

Looks like no answer to this one. I know from images I have seen that the badge was worn in the late sixties, by both regular and special constabulary. Perhaps it was worn from the fifties through to amalgamation?

It was worn during the entire existence of the force from 1857 - 1969.

What Simon says is correct. They wore it from start to finish. It was also worn by all ranks, top to bottom.
