Lovely badge.

Is there a size difference to distinguish from a cap badge?

regards

G'day Mike

Sorry mate but its a cap badge rather than an arm badge. On the Arm badge the knight does not have a sword and the plume on the helmet is shorter and of a different shape.

See Geoff Newman Militaria No 12520.

Regards

Phil.
