The RAE badges are not listed in JCs Book because the have always been considered Association badged
The same badge can also be found with Buttonhole FB itting
Had the same Talk with DW when he picked one up a couple months back

They may have started out as collars then discarded for a different design and then became association badges ?? As JC say's in his book they were known to exit . As they are the same design as the Cap/hat badge .
