Following the help from Mr J Temple west regarding my infantry Assault badge , and his request to see more pictures of the pin , I have now solved my picture uploading problem.

it related to an iOS 11 issue.

anyway , I hope Mr West sees this . The pin has no " crook" at the top as most others seem to but it does have age and patina to match the piece , a period replacement ?

Hi, Martin

Firstly, and on a lighter note...we are all friends here so there is no need to stand on ceremony ...It's John.

Right...yes, I would say that the pin has, at some point, has been replaced...when is anybody's guess. Still a nice example though.

The only time that it may become an issue is when the day comes that you decide to sell it on to perhaps upgrade to an all original example.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
