You see these Lesney badges a lot at militaria fairs - usually in the 50p box. Which is generally where they remain.

Here is a Black Watch badge in the packaging - mostly sold by Woolworths.

I always think of them as being sold by "Cheesemans", a big department store in Lewisham back around the 70's. I don't know now whether I got the few I have back that sort of time or more recently, found them in a bag with a batch of the "Texaco" little plastic badges.
I saw one or the other Texaco's for sale on eBay a while back - as a beret badge.

The Lancashire Fusiliers museum version bears (see what I did there?) a beret badge that looks very similar to the original LF badge in design and possibly size but then that cloth badge has been copied anyway.
The RM bears badge is a cloth "fantasy" isn't it, not produced for any other purpose? Is that one wearing a metal one?

I don't think I'd seen a Grenadier Guards Lesney - here's the Texaco version of the GG, 28mm tall.
