I thought members may be interested to see the cap and shoulder title badge for the London Ambulance Column.

Thank you gentlemen. The enamelled one is the cap badge, sorry I didn't specify before.

Nice, Jerry, does yours have very thin/tight lugs on the back?

Phil, I would say they are slightly smaller lugs but mine have been "squashed"
