Title Musician's sleeve badge
Nationality British
Period c 1902-early 1960s
Price £10.00

This was worn on the left sleeve by bandsmen (in all foot regiments) as an indication of musical ability. The king's crown replaced the queen's in 1902 and would have been worn from then until the introduction of Stabrite badges in the early 1960s.

It would appear to be a die-struck badge in gilding metal and comes complete with its green cloth backing and tinned zinc backing plate.

My husband LOVED his North Africa escape map - I had it professionally framed - it's beautiful.

The bayonet arrived safe and sound this morning. It is absolutely magnificent. I am thrilled to bits with it. Thanks for all the interest you have shown.

My very best wishes, and thank you, very sincerely, once again.
