    Here you are gents my two Clasps..The Bronze one I have already at home.& yes I know it is upside down but the Missus tooks the photos & I ain't telling her to sort it out!!.Otherwise I would be getting awarded a wound badge. The Silver will be at my house mid Feb hopefully?..So that will go on my 57 shelves & look good. Oh & any info would be great.

    Nice additions Terry! They are both S&L, constructed with a separate backplate. Deumers had the background painted black, thus no backplate. Your silver is mid production, would need to see a photo of the pin to date the other one.

    Is the catch broken off on the bronce close combat clasp or is it the photo?

    Regards

    Edit: Never mind, I can see the catch when I zoom in.

    Hello Nick the catch is there it was open when the wife was taking the photos.. I will get some more photos when I get home in 2 weeks..Thanks for the info..I knew the Silver was a mid 60s job.. But I couldn't remember who was the maker? Thanks for the info on the back plates I didn't know that at all so I learnt something today which is nice....I need to keep my eyes peeled for a Gold one now..Cheers Terry.
