Default SAS Enamel Badge for Identification

Has anyone seen one of these before please?

It belongs to the family of a former member of 2 SAS.

Is it possibly French made? There appears to be some form of marking on the reverse, but this is difficult to make out.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Graham

Hi Graham

I have a badge which looks similar but no markings on back and is from a Belgian source and related to Belgian SAS vets worn:issued presumably late forties.

Cheers
JB

Hi JB,

Well done, a great help, thank you.

The more I look at the one I posted, the more I wonder if it really is a maker's mark on the reverse, or a random pattern created during manufacture.

Thanks again for your assistance - greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Graham

Hi,

Pin arrangement looks very continental. The marking to the reverse comes from the manufacture and would suggest that the underside of the press needs a darned good polish...
