Manchester - GROVE MFG B'HAM, metal slider

Hi Ian,

Over time, more markings on specific badges will be discovered that are not shown in Appendix 5: Authorised and Manufactured Cap Badges. Even though the data used in the appendix was taken from a wide cast of collectors other marks for specific badges will invariably be discovered.

What Chris is doing here in identifying every maker marked A/A cap badge far outweighs my attempt in this task and will, undoubtedly, be an essential source of information for many years to come. It is a hell of an undertaking and I hope everyone can continue to support him in this task.

Regards

Chris
