This is the post war badge in w/m and the Firmin marked bronzed brass from the 1930's. Beware the brass fakes as they are well made but the voiding is not right.

Hi Alan.
When was the WM one with the Great war titles sealed, or worn? Was it brought out for the blues dress hat? While the bronze one was worn on the khaki service dress hat?
Cheers
Chris

There is a sealed date for it. Which hat it went into is not clear but I imagine it was was worn on the beret, There was a pre-WW1 w/m one worn on the No1 Dress cap shown in pre-war photos alongside the bz one on khaki caps,

The 193o's one would have coincided with the khaki peaked cap, side cap in 1940 and GS cap in 1943.

Thank you for the links Alan, much appreciated.
So the pre 30's OR's badge without Great War scroll comes in WM, and bronze.
And post WW1 30's badge, (which I have a Bz one) with Great War scrolls are again in Bronze and WM.
So the brass ones that you see could be the bronze rubbed off or a fake?

Cheers

Chris

Here is the WM badge as worn on the blue dress cap. OR badges were in WM, GM and bronzed finish.

The post-WW1 badge made by Firmin is also found in WM, GM and bronzed finish.
