    The same badge was used up to 1958 from before WWI.

    The regiment was formed in 1919. Previous to that, it was the Bedfordshire regiment. The (regular) regiment disbanded in 1958. That badge is either a copy - or a very badly worn original. I have a blackened Bedfordshire regiment badge mounted (of all places) on a WW1 Mills bomb.
