WWII version of the OR's white metal cap badge, Kings crown on lugs whilst the post war version is on a slider.  This version has some known dies flaws which suggest it was probably made by a well known maker whose name escapes me at this time.  Officers would often have worn the same version, though silver versions and those with pierced crowns were also worn by them.

Thanks Dave.  Great to see you posting.  I always think you cannot overstate the importance of good photo's.

I also have this one, w metal on lugs, Queen's crown so only early post 53 I assume, as they must have gone over to AA quite quickly.  I think it is fine as I don't think this type has been faked, but that said....
