Smile Numbered WW1 Royal Artillery badge

Hi all,

As you do I picked up a cap badge to the Royal Artillery and noted that a number and initial was engraved on the slider - actually a ring re-inforced slider circa 1917.

The number is 925037 A.S - a quick check of medal index cards gives it as belonging to Driver Victor G. Dye, Royal Field Artillery, 1915 star, BWM and Victory. Original number 607.

A.S maybe army/artillery service?

Not many times do we get to match a cap badge to a wearer.

Cheers Dean.
