Some explanation for those who like it.

There were no more then18 RVCs in Shropshire. 48 is the county number of Shropshire.
Thus the badge only tells us that it is of one of the Shropshire RVCs, though not which one.

Hi Gents,

As requested here are some more images of both badges.

The bullion example is the only one I have ever seen. The glengarry badge, I think I have seen one other. So both really quite rare.

Cheers,

Roy

Hi Gents,

If anyone is interested in these they have now gone on ebay with no reserve.

A real shame these rare badges could not find a home with a forum member.

Cheers,

Roy

Hi BC,

Thanks for your interest.

I had second thoughts as the categories here in the US are pants. So I pulled them for the time being.

They are still available at the moment though.
