Hi Guys,

Here's my 4/7 RDG and RDG badges I have picked up in recent years.

Enjoy!

Mick, the enamelled/coloured example cap badge in anodised alluminium is particularly rare. Another which took me an age to find myself.

Yes indeed. Been looking for one for years and am most grateful to be able to purchase one from a forum member.

Only thing that would made it better would have been the enamel 4/7 !

The pouch badge is a white metal version of the cap badge with east west lugs. No enamel or anything.

If the new pouch badge wasnt going to be enamel it was a wasted opportunity in my opinion. They should have considered using the 7DG lion badge. Thanks for the pics.

Restrikes,

They should have had the pouch badge designed to something like this , canít remember who sent me the image . Not been able to find any reference on this badge.

Cheers

Tony C
