Title Royal Marines Warrant Officer's sleeve badges
Nationality British
Period c 1953-60s
Price £25.00

Probably worn on the number two blue tunic of the RM, the smaller badge (just 6.25 cm across) was worn at the cuff of the sleeve, while the larger one (just over 8 cm across) was normally worn just below the left shoulder. The date could be anywhere from 1953 through to the mid-60s to judge by the quality of the bullion work.

This is English bullion work rather than Pakistani work. All today's bullion badges for the military are now made in Pakistan.

The condition is reasonable for the age, but there is some minor moth scarring to the backing of both pieces.

Pistol arrived safely, thanks for the prompt service.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
