That is an interesting point. I have only seen that maker on a/a badges dating from 1968-70 such as the proposed merger of the Glos and Hants and the short lived TA badges from 68-9. I would agree that any metal one would date from then. It has already been mentioned in another thread that documentary evidence shows that the 8th Hussars wore the k/c badge until their amalgamation.
