Default Four Infantry Badges

Hi all, I have some doubts about these.
The Dorset and Stafford no sweat holes. Stafford has been varnished and is a bit rubbed around the crown. Bedfordshire economy looks to have a 're soldered slider. Royal Fusiliers lugged. Could I get some opinions from the forum please.
Regards, Jim

The only badge I see there that I am really comfortable with is the single Royal Fusiliers OSD collar badge.

The Dorset regt badge was made in a/a. Prior to that the Dorsetshire was in bimetal.

That Dorset might be OK, but if it is, I would be looking for a better example to replace it.

I already have a much better example with sweat holes, but I am unsure about this one. However I do not want to cast it into the pot if it's thought to be good.

Perhaps I was not clear the regt wore the bimetal Dorsetshire badge which was replaced by the a/a Dorset badge. Yours is a fantasy item

There is no chance for that Dorset badge I’m afraid. For a time the short scroll Dorset in BM was considered genuine, however, I’m now of the same opinion as Alan.

Ah, thanks for that Alan. Into the pot it is cast. Any further opinions on the other 3 ?
