Default At Last Gold Bullion HMP Chiefs badge with a bonus addition

I have been seeking a Gold Bullion wire H M Prisons Chiefs badge for some years now then a forum member comes up with this Gem.

Thank you Steve

Not only the Bullion Badge but it is attached to the cap itself.

This cap has QE2 buttons added but has the characteristics of a late 30ís /40ís cap. I need to replace the chin strap as I have added a modern plastic one for display purposes.

This has simply made my collecting year.

I am still seeking another to display with Medals I have, and earlier styles of Principal and chiefs badges so keep them peeled.

Regards

Stephen

I know how much you wanted the badge, the hat was an added bonus, I know you will look after it.

Always nice when you know a rare item has found its ideal home.
