Default CHROME BADGES

I have a couple of chrome badges and buttons.

Does anyone know when, why and by whom chrome badges were worn.

Is there a definitive list?

Chris

Hi Chris, the chrome Britannia of the Royal Norfolk Regt was used in the 1960s by the band.

Thanks for the information and links.

I thought I had seen something previously but again my search skills have been found to be wanting.
