Default Royal Artillery embroidered cloth badge

Is it possible to say when this Royal Artillery cloth badge was worn?

I am presuming that it was worn on battledress.

Its probably earlier than BD judging by its construction.

More typically WW1.

Simon,

I am pleased that it may date from the Great War. It measures approximately three inches by one and a half inches. Could it part of a Royal Artillery Sergeant's rank badge?

Simon.

Simon,

Yes, sorry I thought you knew that.
Its a NCO's/Warrant Officers arm badge worn in conjunction with rank badge.

regards

Simon,

I suspected that it was, but I am only really familiar of the brass version which presumably replaced the embroidered version. The gun is larger than the brass version hence my needing clarification.

Thanks for your help,

Simon.

Simon, (Highwood), I have one almost identical to yours, purchased from a respected forum member many years ago. It was listed as late Victorian. I got into a panic last night trying to find it. When I do, Iíll post a picture for you. Best regards, David J.
