Most of the queries on this (brilliant) Forum is firstly identification and secondly date. There are a number of specialists here who will be able to identify a certain badge. However, some of these specialists do not necessarily know the dates between that badge might have been produced and / or worn. Pre 1922 could be 1066 !
Details are not far away – look at my 1914 Album which provides years but can supply day and month if needed.
In this case (Cheshire Regt) the authorisation was 11th February 1897

Best wishes Rob, I hope you had a good Christmas

Looking at the badge concerned, I would have thought that it was circa Great War, but, certainly twentieth century post 1903 with that slider.

Don't we all use that means of describing badges on occasions, the 'pre or post-so-and-so' badge, which is merely a means of identifying the design or pattern, as opposed to assigning a specific date to the item in question?

If we know the dates of issue and obsolescence why don't we use them ?

The dates and Pattern numbers are not difficult to find. Even if you can't get to TNA or NAM etc, there are plenty of people here that have looked up such details.

Quite, but I suppose it may well be a case of those who donít necessarily have such details immediately to hand simply describing a badge in a quick and easy manner.

As helpful and as informative as it would undoubtedly be, is it necessary always to have a badge accompanied by its pattern number, KK reference, date of issue, inside lug measurement etc?

I, in my ignorance, simplify even more. I just say Great War pattern, inter war period, Second World War type or post 2WW.

Sorry Julian

Regards,

Phil
