    Hi Nick.

    Guessing you know these are fairly recent/post war badges. I've never seen that type
    of set-up on the first award either, and suspect it has been repaired as you
    suggest - it looks like the pins have been glued in place.

    Sometimes the clutch pins are broken off so that badges and insignia can be attached
    to a display frame by taping or gluing them on. When the display is broken up,
    an attempt at restoring the badge is what may have happened were.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    yeah i know they're post war mate i just like the fact on the first & second award the rifles are stuck on separately as for the repair im guessing its either the original clutch pins were broken it was a pin back originally that's been replaced with these for what ever reason.
