Response to More Theories...
....Sorry..forgot to add this on the last post.....Ken..supposing that your theory of a wartime produced die variety that was not used by the Regiment or for any other wartime use is true...what does it make these type 2 badges that started showing up in the 60's???......surely one wouldn't suggest that these badges would be a wartime collectable badge?. Again.....If people are wanting to collect the wartime configuration of this badge as worn by this regiment during the war the only existing factual evidence as it stands now is that the type 1 cap badge is the one worn. It really is that simple. Those who wish to add possible 2nd die varieties that may have been stamped out post war are free to add that oddity to their collection and if someone proves that these are in fact ww2 badges you'll be happy to know that you can add one for about 25 bucks. Thanks for your insights on the CPB badges....Interesting stuff and I,m happy to be learning new stuff all the time.
Cheers for now,Mike.
