An attractive item, some light polishing to silver plated device mounted to centre and gilt worn back from service wear. Matching benchmarks, Victorian crown and ornate scrolls belt ends.
A lovely pair, with some minor service wear and complete with original chain, clasp and three original horizontal loops to the reverse of each grenade. Worn by regiments such as the Northumberland Fusiliers, etc. Thanks to George for also confirming they are still officer issue for the Life Guards.
A real stunner with two original silver loops and hallmarked to the reverse with the Birmingham date letter X for 1947 and maker marks for JR Gaunt.

DRW 54 (1/3)
1902 -1952 King's Crown pattern silver plated officer's fretted cap badge with a gilt wash, with all of title and motto cut out with strong silver lugs fitted east-west. Circa 6.5cm high and 4.5cm wide.
Excellent condition, some very minor wear to highlights and a few of the cut out letters are only partially present. This is incredibly intricate workmanship and a beautiful badge.
A stunning and scarce die cast marked silver with red and blue enamel to the centre of three part construction. Two original copper loops to the reverse. Makers stamp W&H ( Walker & Hall , Sheffield). In very good condition with no damage or repairs to the enamel. Walker & Hall were cutlers and made regimental spoons in the the 1930s and I believe moved into military badge making in the early 1940s.
Die cast with two original loops to the reverse of each. A similar one is featured on page 33 (figure D5B) of Insignia of the regiment as published by the Gurkha regiment (copy to be provided of the relevant page). As worn by officers of the 2nd battalion on the white helmet, service dress and forage caps. From the collection of a senior Gurkha officer. Rare.

A fine and scarce gilt flaming grenade with silver plate Inniskilling castle overlay with scroll below. Two long loops to the reverse for wear in the cap. Some dulling to gilt and bending to loops otherwise in good condition. Circa 3.7cm tall.
A Queens cap badge (bulled as they were all required to do!) on its original white ivorine plastic white disk as worn by officer cadets, this one apparently worn on the khaki GS cap (a bit like a tam o'shanter without the bobble), a single brass regimental cap button (c14mm in diameter) and a matched pair of printed white on red Queen's cloth shoulder titles, removed from his Battledress tunic.
