Default 'OTC' designs still in use by CCFs today

There remains some sharp practice by some dealers selling 'OTC' badges which are in fact modern CCF badges and therefore still in production today.

These include:

Ampleforth wear the old OTC design in bronzed metal but with CCF title on a red backing.

Barnard Castle CCF wear the double shield badge in gilding metal.

Bloxham School CCF retain their own school design in a very yellow and shiny gilding metal. The CCF's NCOs wears the Rifles cap badge alongside the school badge. http://www.bloxhamschool.com/news-an.../ccf-camp.html

2 pictures of Sutton Valance badges. The old OTC design and the modern CCF one. The CCF one has a pointed snout and all 4 hooves touch the ground. Dealers please take note!

The school archives show that the WW1 era badge was bronzed but worn with brass tunic buttons.

I don't know what their stores are like, but some are issued with the RA cap badge, and some with the 'Dulwich' one.

The Gordon Boys School ( Now Gordon's School) have worn the OTC badge in gilding metal and Anodised Aluminium since becoming a CCF rather than an OTC. Change from Gilding metal to Gold coloured Anodised Aluminium was in the late 1960s. So the Anodised version has only been used for CCF. The Gilding metal badge was worn by CCF and OTC.

James thanks for those dates. To be exact the school has never had an OTC and was not part of the OTC movement. As it was for other-ranks it had a Cadet Corps prior to them becoming a CCF.

There is a silver anodised version. Pipers presumably,but this is no longer worn.
