Is it a dog?
Is this another spy question?
Assume it isn't a greyhound in an overcoat then!!
Silver greyhounds were (historiccally) emblems of the Monarch's messengers / couriers.
Resurgam, I didn't come back quite as fast as you (get it?)
Looks like a silver greyhound in a racing coat. Doe it have any hall marks on it?
Yessir. You obviously had further to go!!
I suspected it might be, but the badge is a little large (2 1/2 inches) when my understanding was it was a lapel badge.
Does anyone have picture(s) of the badge itself?
If I remember it was not so much a lapel badge but one worn behind the lapel and was about 21/2 inches .
I may be wrong. There must be a QM out there who can tell us - most were ex forces or Met if I remember correctly- mind you the old memory is looking particularly dodgy these days!!!
Thanks again R.
My pleasure Dear Boy
