The cap badge is similar to a late WWII piece which I have. I beleive it is from the 1940s to early 60s period. I love these earlier silver ones, they are such nicer quality than the modern pieces in base metal.

The Navy Cross has a wrap broach which suggests it is 40s or 50s as well. A very nice pair.

Does your brother need any more relatives :cheeky:
