Default Latest Veterans Badge

Hi All,

I'm not sure whether this has been commented on before, so apologies if it has, but my Wife's veteran's badge arrived today with a CIII crown (although for service to Queen Elizabeth).

KR,

Pete

Interesting to see the new version of the badge, and I wonder if there are now a stock of St. Edward's Crown ones to be disposed of rather than issued?

What I also realise is the initial issue and first replacement are free. I wonder if this explains the number for sale online- which by the way all seem to have increased in price recently?

I did say to my wife, I'll get her a Queen's crown, as that's when she served and she could be an 'old sweat'!

How are the new badges marked to the reverse? First Firmin badge I have seen. Regards, Paul.
