Title Bullion badge, Civil Service Rifles
Nationality British
Period c 1910
Price £50.00

This could be a side cap badge or an officer's collar insignia off the full dress parade tunic of the pre-1914 era. My guess is that the two badges were identical and that the tunic badge was simply used on the side cap.

The backing behind the motto is white silk. The backing to the whole badge is pale buff and their dress uniform was this colour in the Edwardian period, hence my strong suspicion that it is CSR - please correct me if I am wrong.

Just under 4 cms high, the badge is in good condition, but, of course, the bullion is tarnished. The reverse is backed with paper, quite normal for this period, indeed right up to fairly modern times. The paper is slightly soiled and crumpled, as one would expect.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

The buckle arrived today, thanks for the fast dispatch, a nice addition to my collection

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.
