Default Somerset Light Infantry.

Am I right in thinking the PA SLI in A/A is a very rare badge or am I getting my wires crossed with another?

Thanks

So I beleive MIke. I was in a local shop yesterday who's bought a collection in, some WW1-2 regular common stuff and two boards one for the DCLI and another for PASLI. Each had a few TA titles, a bronze here and there, some collars and then anodized including the said badge. It's a Smith & Wright one. I know the shop owner well and pointed it out and told him I'd do a bit on enquiring.

I would have thought more like 280-300? 160 would be a bargain?

That was the last Bosleys hammer price so add buyer's commission and postage on to it and you are easily approaching 200.

Bargains, bargains, bargains. It goes to show that many out there still do not know about this forum. Offer 20 Keith......after all its only anodised Thats a joke by the way, in case anyone is confused regarding the clarity of my statement.

Hi Guys,

The Somerset Light Infantry is a scarce badge but they do come up every month or so. There are a lot scarcer A/A badges than this one which are probably not known about by the collecting community at large.

Saying that though, I'm after on if one does become available.

Regards

Chris

Default Somerset LI

I have a note that shows a Somerset LI Agonised Ally cap badge was sold in a Bosley's auction in October 2005, for 205.

This price does not include seller's premium, buyer's premium, P&P, credit card charges, mess fees, regimental band charges etc etc.

Default Somerset LI on Ebay

Just thgt it worth mentioning that there seem to be quite a few people bidding on this - Hopefully they are not AA collectors.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2006663480...84.m1438.l2649

I think this is not an AA badge. Seller has uploaded an image of the back of the badge, which appears to show this is not made from Agonised Ally.

Best rgds and good luck to bidders who are after this badge.
