Default Home Guard Shoulder Flash question

I am looking to buy a pair of genuine HG shoulder flashes that were the correct pattern/design & colour for 1941/1942.

There seems to be quite a lot of differing HG flashes out in the market place of which I presume lots are 'fake'.

How can you tell a genuine badge?

The standard Ordinance issue are screen printed on to material which resembles the material used to line BD collars and pockets etc. Lots of rubbish reproductions out there but originals are not hard to tell. These look good on this dealers site. Private purchase woven examples were used as well but are harder to date.

RIDICULOUS price!!!

Do not pay more than 10 - 12 a pair.

Lots available everywhere, very common

Yeah, 35 is taking the wotsit, but you'd be luck to find a PAIR for 10-12...
