Not wanting to send this interesting thread off on a tangent but thought Iíve read a couple threads years ago which stated Marples & Beasley didnít mark sliders but rather only made officers badges. So any OR badge bearing their name was fake? Unless of course the badge and mark referred to is an officerís badge that is. Or Iíve imagined the whole thing, which is possible.

Dowler marked badges I would date as 1970's into early 1980's - not much beyond that.

Marples and Beasley made anodised aluminium badges for other ranks. Some sliders are marked, others are not. Its quite a wide (and sometimes short) slider compared to other makers. In my opinion badges marked thus in AA are fine.

Is there a difference in actual period of manufacture between DOWLER BIRMINGHAM and Wm DOWLER B'HAM marked sliders?
