Hi Laurent

43rd/48th Battalion, The Hindmarsh Regiment.

A Citizen Military Forces infantry battalion raised in South Australia during the early 1950s. Absorbed into the 1st Battalion, Royal South Australia Regiment in 1960.

I can't comment on the badge, although at that time of production I would expect to see a maker's mark on it.

I think it's fine. This badge did not have maker's marks, as far as I'm aware.

Looks good to me. I don't think I have ever seen anyone try and reproduce one. All the ones I have ever seen are legit.

And not all the badges during this period have maker's marks.
