Hi,

Would love to hear some thoughts on this one,a bit battered and bruised to say the least.It has very similar characteristics to the one in Gordon's book, hinge pin and repaired clip. The measurements are also bang on.

Cheers.

Looks like an original piece, and probably a wartime period repair. Period repairs are often crdue in the extreme. They didn't have to be pretty, being on the reverse where no one would see, they just had to do the job.

Thanks Gordon, even though it looks a bit beat up it still retains great quality compared with my GWL badge.

It came to me via a well known auction site, accompanied with a very nice Frenca wristwatch stamped D.U.

In time honoured fashion,the story being that they were taken from an officer for a packet of tabs. Luckily for me the seller gave no indication of a U-Boat badge in his auction description. I have tried to get a clearer image of it.

Cheers Stephen.
