Snap I have the same one but no makers name on screw back, just plain brass. Very heavy and nice design as above.

Interesting to see yours TeaRex, :jumping:

to my eyes I already detect a slight variation with regards the tank barrels, the one on the right, in mine as you look at the picture seems to point more level than the one in yours! :speechless1:

Can you post a picture of the rear of yours?

Hi Kev,

Yes looking at mine a bit more, the wings are also different mine seem to be more curved at the end. Anyway attached a back view as requested.

Cheers

Rex

Hallo Rex,

Thanks for the picture, its hard to be sure seeing the picture size is small, but the brass screw-back might be a replacement, this would not be hard to do, and in my opinion was very common to see, as the same style of screw-back could be found on many R.P.R. badges including the Radar Technicians badges:-

Example of the screw fittings,

here fixed inverse to the rear of

Radar Technician badges of the R.P.R. period.
