Iíve a couple spare Grenadier Guards badges somewhere. Let me know if you need loops E-W or N-S or a slider. Be happy to swap you for that grenade. They look like a HAC style flames without the monogram.

Thanks a lot for your generous offer Luke! But I already have a spare G. Guards badge! (By the way...what is a loops E-W or N-S??) The most curious is that the cap doesn't have markings of have wore another badge before this one...looks like this was the only badge ever wear...

No need to apologise Andy, it's not your fault mate, it's what they did with big blokes - sent them to the Guards

I don't know...it looks like a HAC grenade without the monogram as you and Luke said...but the winnipeg grenadiers is really similar too...the badge is 55 mm...that helps in anyway?

Could it be a pouch badge? What about the bandsmans badge for the Royal Scots Greys?
