Thank you for your replies men.
I too have a feeling about it...Mine is that it is a good cross as it came with a bundle of other nice pieces.
I am just wondering if the vet picked it up post war as a piece of memorabilia to add to his collection and it is in fact a dud!
Looks like a horrible one piece fake.

thank you for all your comments/
The cross is a soldered frame with Iron (magnetic) centre.
It was part of the big bundle of crosses and I had it down as a dubious one....still it was free so no worries there.
All the best
