found this on Walt Bay - 250161649303
Anyone know where this is missing from?
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??
Old R.E. Trains?
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)
