Default UKAEA Blue ring cap badge qustions

Good Afternoon,
Can anyone tell me if the blue ring star cap badge for the UKAEA, was general issue? or senior officer?

Are these badges known to be faked? Is so, what are the tell tales to look out for?

Thank you

Billy,

Yes, the blue ring cap badge was worn by senior officers.

I'm not aware of them being reproduced. That said they are not difficult to find. This is due to, I think, the large stocks once held and which over a period of time have been released onto the collectors market.

Dave.
