Bullion cap badge inquiry

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Kindly have a look at the front and back photos of a presumed cap insignia nicely made in bullion thread, about which I have had no luck in identifying. I naturally thought the "R" stood for reserve. My old Rosignoli book on WW 2 badges and insignia does not mention it. Dimensions are: height 2 15/16" and width 3 9/16". I'm sure someone here will know what it is and when it was used. Thanks for looking.

Frank D.

Hello, Strange one, appears as a Royal Navy officers cap badge, but It lacks the anchor into the oval . Officers of the RNVR and the RNR both weared the anchor , and surmounted with the letters RNR or RNVR ,

I wonder it may be a "fashion" item?

Hello,  very well made to be a fashion item ,and the Royal Crown was not a trivial symbol .

Unfortunately, the use of the Royal Crown, has in recent years, been portrayed increasingly on "fashion" items and its use in that respect is not unusual.
