I don't believe the 2 you refer to are RMA as they would have been wearing the grenade style badge. I have a feeling these are all Engineers and the 2 with cap badges where the globe and laurel appears to have an additional piece at the top may well be the badge pictured below.

Paddy,

That is an interesting badge. How is it constructed, struck in one piece or are the flames added to a collar badge?

Apologies, I was talking about the image posted by Simon, in the second image.

The badge I have pictured is not genuine, it is one I put together as a representative piece to fill a gap until a the unlikely time that a genuine one turns up (I will then deconstruct the one I have). There is a genuine one pictured on page 191 of Personal Distinctions. I believe it is made up of a RM globe & laurel and the top of a generic fusiliers regiment shoulder title/collar grenade.

Hi Paddy,

Many thanks. Is the original badge constructed in such a way as yours or is it struck in one piece?

Cheers,

Andrew
