    Nice one fella!!!!

    Just to let everyone know, the tag with the rubber siliencer is heaxanfonal. we still get issued one round and one hexagonal. The unofficial one was made by a mate who had access to the stamping machine at the guard room back in 1993, so I had them for a while.

    The reason the regimental numbers are different is that in the late 90's they changed the pay system so everyone got new numbers!!!

    I had an interesting discovery inside a WWII tunic in my collection, above the Sgts cloth rank is a flaming bomb badge (Engineers) and guess what Sgt Loader used as a backing plate for the badge? His fibre disc! He probably had replacement metal discs when he did this, so no further use for the fibre one.
