Default 3 Artillery badges- Territorial, HAC and Moving Wheel - 2nd opinions please. Thanks!

Gentlemen,

Please your opinions on the originality of these 3 badges and whether or not these are correct for the ww1 and/or ww2 era. Thank you.

Cheers, Tom

Don't know about the TA example but the other two look fine. Bladed one looks like a full dress gilt example.
Cheers,
Alex

All three look good to me. The small badge is a Queen's Crown, post 1952, beret badge.

You are of course completely right about that crown. In the 250 or so badges I have overlooked that completely. Thanks. Return to sender as I just collect pre-1946 items.

Thanks also Alex.

There is a Kings Crown version of the smaller badge. I am unsure of its dates of issue, however, it could fit with your collecting period.
