How does that prove that its authentic ,if all its showing is a picture ? Its could be made from anything !

Well spotted, Mike!

I'm with you all the way. Unfortunately Mr B doesn't agree.

All the best.

North Stafford in AA by Gaunt London. it seems to have been used with a patch of card behind the knot to imitate the holland cloth backing, though it does appear to be cloth on card.

I joined the Army in 1958 and was posted to the Depot, Lichfield for basic training.The depot served both the North and South Staffords. Recruits were assigned to the Regiments according to where enlistment had been conducted ie Stoke on Trent meant the North Staffords. I was issued with , and wore, a North Staffords a/a cap badge and I will dig out a photo to prove it. After basic training I progressed to MONS OCS - 3 or 4 months later amalgamation had taken place and I was a Stafford.

I have a pair of Staffords collar dogs picked up around 1979 from 1 Staffs QM's Stores I think it was (or possibly a 1 Staffs squaddie gave them to me), they're backed with brown paper cut from an envelope.
