In my experience, WRAC kept their capbadge, regardless of what trade they were. Anyway, when were the non-staybrite badges phased out? Certainly before the mid-sixties - how old is this Tobin bloke anyway?
You can still buy them.
He's 63 according to the Beeb.

Shame its not an SF beret badge - then this site would be full of cries of Walt, and there'd be lots of books published along the lines of "I was the second man in under the patio"...

TV reports also showed a Seaforth badge or brooch.
More here with x1 REME, the Seaforth badge and another jock regiment?

Can't quite believe they've labelled them "white metal stag brooch", "yellow metal brooch" and "white and yellow metal brooch" though. Surely just about anyone would recognise a capbadge, even if they didn't know what regiment it belonged to?

The middle one is this thing by the way: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemo_me_impune_lacessit

We are talking police officers here, detectives at that.

I had a St Christoper identical to that...but I am pretty sure I was not murdered and raped...

I will ask the wife when I get home if I was burried under the patio..
Cheer up, it's never too late. It could still happen; ask the wife... :twisted:

ISTR that the terms are technical, referring to the composition of the metal in the badges, rather than describing hat they depict.
 
Could it be a VM who was attached to the QOH and the Seaforths? Doubt if many civvies would understand what a cap badge was and if the saw it on its own would probably describe it as a brooch.
He certainly kept a lot of tat didn't he? :D

Isn't 'Brooch No9' the Royal Rutland & Cambridgshire Weavers?

The "Yellow Brooch" is Scots Guards...the other Seaforths..who were amalgamated in 1961 and the badge in that form was no longer used.

'QOHldrs' if you will Mit. One's a fine Ex-Regiment in it's own right with proud traditions going back 000's of years. The other one is some Jock Grunts.

QOH
