Default 4th Bn Suffolk Regiment OSD Capbadge.

Hi All,
My friendly, local, postperson brought me three new pieces for my Suffolk Regiment collection, yesterday, of these, the officers badge of the 4th Battalion, seems the most interesting, to me. I see quite a few of the ORs badges, but the 4th Bn OSD bronze badges do seem to be rather scarce. I guess all of the OSD badges are in short supply, really, mostly I suppose, because there were never that many of them to start with. I have one other OSD capbadge in this little lot, the other badge is the 1916 brass economy badge, of course. Any and all comments on these three, would be most welcome.

Chris, all your badges are good ones IMO, you are correct in saying the officers badge of the 4th Battalion is a bit scarce, it took me many years to get one.

A very nice lot of badges there! The '16 economy was actually worn.
