Default Collecting British cap badges mainly under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II

Hi everybody

I am collector of British cap badges mainly under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II

I like cap badges as well as plumes and hackles or tartan backings.

I collect Dress N 1 caps, officers mainly, post-WW2

I like the Guards too, and I am trying to find a NCO bearskin to create a bust of mannequin / dummy of a WO (exemple below).



Best regards

Eric

For me, the NCO's bearskins are taller than the OR's ones (Senior NCO (Junior Officer's) Bearskin, taller than the Other Ranks issue, but not as tall as the Commissioned Officer's version), isn't it ?

There no difference for Ranks, Gdsm-WO1. The Senior Ranks did try to pick out the best skins, but there are only two types.
