Default Silver RFC officers cap badge

Hi everyone

This came with a few other badges I recently purchased. Marked silver to the back. Can anyone provide any information as not a variant I have seen before.

Thanks

Vicky

One of Badgemans 'SILVER' stamped fakes, available for most regiments.

And probably referring to its colour not what it's made of.

RFC officers wore Bronze and Gilt cap Badges, the former upon Service Dress, the latter on Patrol and Home Service Full Dress.
The badge you show is not original.

Hi Simon

Have been reading your posts for some time now. I have a couple of possible trade badges that came with some Artillery items. The only one that comes to mind was a wreath with a "P" in the centre. This is handcut and affixed with a bar top and bottom.

You, or someone on the Forum, told me it stood for "Plotter". There is another one too but I forget the letter. PM me if you might want it/ them.
