Question 8th City of London Battalion (Post Office Rifles)

Hi all,

I have two badges to the Post Office Rifles (K&K 1827) - one lugged and one on a crimped slider both in WM. I am thinning out the collection so will only mount one - question is the lugged pre-1908 one genuine - close up of lugs as hint of being footed. Strike quality much better on lugged badge. Have read posts to this unit but only seen other badges with sliders to compare. My badge with slider has a pronounced curve to it.

Advice kindly sort, cheers Dean.

Hello Dean,

You may be interested in Ry's 8th Battalion badge, for comparison, in this thread:

Thanks Peter,

Ry's is lugged closer to the centre of the badge - think will go with slider one as matches others more closely on Forum.

Cheers Dean.
