WW2 RA Royal Artillery Plastic Economy Field Service Cap Grenade - Stanley

Brown plastic 7 flames grenade with two original blades to the reverse. Sometimes incorrectly referred to as 'Bakelite'. Maker marked A Stanley & Sons, Walsall. In very good condition.

The first order for the plastic grenade was placed on 10th Feb 1942. It was for wear both as a head-dress and collar badge, however, collar badges had not been authorised on battledress and SD Tunics were almost obsolete by this date. The gun badge

On the SD cap Other Ranks had worn the service dress cap badge (i.e. the large Gun) until ACI 1179 of 1941 authorised the wearing of a grenade.

09.06.41. Telegram sent by WO to all Commands ‘RA cap badge will be of the ‘grenade’ type. Collar badge (Catalogue CB 0520) will be utilised for this service. Cap badges of the ‘gun’ type (Catalogue CB 0289) already in possession will continue to be worn until unserviceable, and no complete change over by units to the new badge will be permitted. No objections will be raised to both types of badge being worn in any one unit.’ 26.06.41. Army Orders refers to above, permitting retention of ‘gun’ badge for horsed units wearing ‘Cap SD Stiff’. By 1951 the Gun badge had again been authorised for wear by Other Ranks on the beret.
