Default Royal Irish Regiment Marples&Beasley

Gold AA Beret Badge, picked up today for a sensible price, I did not have any by this maker which I think are quite uncommon on AA badges.

Ta - the one you show has the long slim neck of the badge shown on that thread as the R Irish badge, as opposed to the squat, no neck of the one shown as a UDR.

A Dowler, for comparison, with a Marples & Beasley, although unclear in the photograph, the Dowler is a slightly paler gold than the Marples.
