Seems to be a slightly different pattern to some I have seen but as their is no repro market I would be surprised if it is not ok.

Interestingly the lugs on the letters are the same as the lugs on the BENBOW title shown elsewhere on this forum.Regards Roger

Authorised 1917 and short-lived, the badge had disappeared by 1926. I have never seen the sealed pattern, and no material was described, so have no great problem with this example. The 'G' is identical to what I take to be the kosher worsted version. The badge is usually seen, as here, in two pieces.
