Thanks Dave,
The dragon on the boss is nearer your WW1 example. If it’s of any relevance my boss is quite large.
Do you know what the silver dragon was worn on and when?
Hwyl,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Only reference I have is the odd photo showing the badge worn early 50s as a beret badge worn by the second battalion .(on the card my badge came with a note from gaunt pattern sept 1952, but I have not seen the pattern card for this badge).
Cheers,
Dave

Jonathan,
We’ll have to try and sort out the different colours and sizes for these boss badges between us.
Hwyl,
Kevin

Not many fakes in this thread, I can't help thinking that it is the wrong section of the forum and it is certainly most interesting.
