Default 6th Armd Div

Hi

A recent find. Interesting mounting.

Seller thought that he may have a match somewhere. Waiting for a reply now.

Would this have come as a pair?

regards
Darrell

Default 6 Armoured Div.

When worn towards the end of W@ it would have been in pairs. Post-war the regulations changed so that only one FS was worn. As a broached badge I suspect this is wartime, and to find a matching pair would be good.

Stephen.

PS- always wondered about the spelling of brooched/ broached. You wear a brooch, but a boat is broached, yet 'brooched' cannot be found by a spellchecker!

Default 6 Armd Div

I don't know about facing pairs, but how did a Guardsman (of all people) get away with this arrangement on his BD? Definitely "Idle!"

Hi

Thank you for that, Gentlemen. I appreciate your responses.

Fingers crossed the matching one appears.

We wore this in the Bays....but never opposites..just the one pattern in 1946...we adopted this badge in mid 1946 from our 1st.Armd. Rhino..(16 was originally 6th. Armd but we had it for 1st.
