Default Badge photo if possible please?

Hi

Can anyone supply a picture of a Bombay Volunteer Artillery Officers cap badge that would have been worn in WW1 Bronze OSD or regular pattern volunteer badge in Silver is fine.

Many thanks and best regards.

Hopefully I should be able to pick one up soon

A rather long time has passed since this enquiry was posted so it may not be relevant

This is a badge I have had an enquiry about, and the only suggestion to date is that it may be the Bombay Volunteer Artillery

Should anyone be able to confirm that it would be appreciated and may help others at the same time

I'd say this is the Bombay Vol Artillery, though have never seen one before. Have shooting medals to them though.

Hi Darvin,
Is this image of the device on the button or is it a badge? What is its size please. The badge of the BVA if I recall was different and had full title on its scroll. Piffer
