RE - LARGE METAL WALL PLAQUE found on Walt Bay

Can't wait for the corresponding beret to come on sale - I need a new tent.

The coloured one looks nice, too.

This must be the ultimate Walt badge.

but it needs a real buffet slayer to wear it with style like the c. nut bus driver in Edinburgh

seen a few dotted around the corps..didn't there use to be one down at Hawley where the crane ops use to hang out? I wonder how many blacksmiths made them at Brompton?? :D

Weren't these a common feature on the old cast-iron gates of RE barracks?

Are there some on the gates of the Sgts' Mess at Gib Bks? (Perhaps this should read "Were there...")

I cast loads of them at Brompton, mostly out of scrap Alluminium.
I also cast a few in bronze and brass when we could get it.

The ones pictured are from our standard mould.

We even cast some in poly-plastic.

The brass and bronze Badges, Syphers and Bombs went mostly to regiments as any one who has been "awarded" ROP's will tell you

There were a few knocking around Berlin when I left in 93 the camps were handed over to the Berlin Senate (left some on RAF Gatow handed over to the Luftwaffe)
