Thank you for the replies so far.

As for a short summary up and until now.

All badges so far seem to be period ww1/ww2 badges with some predating ww1 with the exception of:

Grenadier Guards which seems to be post-ww2.

Alex questions Royal Fusiliers being good. Can someone please confirm or deny this. Thanks!

The grenade in post 24 is Victorian.

Not Royal Fusiliers, Royal Scots Fusiliers in post #33. I would like a second opinion but I would pass on it. I don't like the lugs or the colour.

Yes you are correct: ROYAL SCOTS FUSILIERS - anyone to confirm or deny Alex his doubts? Much appreciated.

I would not necessarily think it was not original, the lower lug is often found affixed a little lower, but, I would perhaps seek a more pleasing example.

Gaunt made a considerable number of these, although, there are not always marked, as a medal collector, I have encountered odd ones in good quite comprehensive groups for both regular pre and Korea period as well as National Service men, so I assume made in the 1940's and still being issued into the 1950's
So I would just buy a marked example of one of those if I were you.
