  1. Can anyone identify this and the periods worn, not sure if it is a capbadge or worn elsewhere on regalia, BQMS or CSM?

    South Staffords badge for sure, but don't know why it's in a wreath.

  6. That is what I mean, one needs more info.
  7. It is metal not staybrite, no markings or stamps to the rear.

    Rear has 2 mountings ? to accept a pin pushed through end to end.

    Some one has suggested a naval connection.

    Thistle? i thought maybe Laurel, signifys a victor?
  8. If you look closely there are also roses and shamrocks in the wreath. It's called the Union Wreath and is a feature of most regimental Colours.

    If not Suth Staffs, perhaps North Staffs or Staffs Yeomanry?
  9. Rather late in on this but can confirm that it is definitely Staffordshire Police - not military
  10. Depending on its size it could be a Staffordshire Regiment warant officers wrist badge for tropical dress Hong Kong or similar.

  11. Can you not read?
  12. It's a Stafford knot not a Staffordshire knot.
