Default Royal Welch Fusiliers Anodised Badge With Extended Lugs

Hi Guys,

I've been doing some work on the structure of anodised badges and note that the fusiliers badges have over extended lugs.

See photo.

Is this to allow room for a heckle to be attached?

Regards

Chris

Not in Anodised Aluminium (Stabrite) you can't. No1 Dress hats have not been worn by the RWF since between the Wars. Once berets and hackles began to be worn, no No1 Dress hats were issued. Bi-metal badges (i.e. old- style brass and nickel silver) did have a slider for wear in the following headress:

1. No1 Dress caps (caveat as above).
2. SD Caps.
3. Field Service Caps (aka side hats) both Regt Patt Navy Blue and GS Khaki.
4. General Service Caps (an early form of beret type khaki headress with a self cloth headband) 1943 on.
5. Blue Beret prior to issue of Anodised Aluminium (with hackle often secured in the leather tube that is stitched inside).
