Penal battalion, brain buckle?

Article about: Just wondering what the current feelings are with these? There doesn't seem any evidence that they were penal battalion, and my personal feeling is they are post war buckles made by original

    That's a great post war period photo. I've not seen that before, seems to point to post war as discussed. I'd still like to pick up a brain buckle just to have one...

    I decided to pick one up, nice to have in a collection... This one has a slight oval impression on the front, almost Lufty shape. Also, the makers mark is very lighty impressed, which sort of ties in with the opinion that it is added relatively recently.
