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.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
