Its the 55 WEST Lancs Div and an interesting example because it is the first pattern before 5 leaves per stem was adopted to reflect the "55"
Interested in all aspects of militaria/military history but especially insignia and history of non regular units with a Liverpool connection

Can you say if the 9th Scottish Division thistle has two lugs - or describe how is it secured to the cloth backing?

Love to see WW 1 cloth. Very rare and hard to find. I have 30th Div, 34th Div (ex Grace Gibson patch) and 37th Div. I have the metal thistle from 9th Div but alas no backing. Will check the fixings for you.

Aquired a TMB patch and bombers badge at stratford this weekend.
