Could anyone Identify this regimental badge please
« on: Wednesday 09 January 13 17:48 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,


I'm after some help in identifying a regimental badge. I thought it was a cap badge, but someone has told me it might be a collar badge.
It may have belonged to my Grandfather, in which case it could be either WW1 or WW2. (He was unfortunate enough to have served in both wars).
It could equally have belonged to my uncle, in which case it would have been when he was in the National Service around 1948-1950.

Any help would be appreciated.

As seen elsewhere!  Royal Artillery sergeant's arm badge, worn above his stripes.  Both world wars and in between.

Hi Ainslie,

Thanks for that. I'll look into it.

Very observant of you.  ;)

Hi, I agree with Wonkiewidge, Royal Artillery sleeve badge (Right facing cannon, worn on the right sleeve).

Hi Jess5athome,

If it's from WW2 then the likelyhood is the badge is my Grandfathers. I don't know if he was a sergeant as he died in 1945 when my mum was 6.

Here is the only picture I have for him.

Hi Linda, I have had several sleeve badges like the one you show and have always associated them with the first world war, however I am not an expert and there are many people on here with a vast knowledge of militaria.
What I can tell you tho` is that the cap badge your Grandfather is wearing is not the Royal Artillery.
