    The miss spelled Cambridgshire with no E rather than CambridgEshire is a known variant and is circa WWII and it has been suggested that when the spelling mistake was noticed they were withdrawn and issued to Home Guard units

    Yep, I agree.

    This is a happy find as the spelling mistake in this variant is one of those things that often causes less well informed collectors to dismiss it as "it must be fake" . Nice find!

    Regards
