Title East Lancashire Regiment officer's dress cap badge
Nationality British
Period 1903-14
Price £25.00

This design, introduced in 1896, mirrors the issue badge, but in a silver as opposed to white brass finish. The crown is the king's pattern, hence the dating, although these officer's badges were produced up to 1940 or so.

This has had a hard life! The original fittings (blades) have been removed and replaced with a lead soldered brass lapel crescent, probably done by its veteran owner to wear in civvies after the war. Thus I suspect that this is an officer's bronze field service badge that has been heavily silver plated, evidenced from the bronze core showing on the remains of the blades.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
