    Lugs replaced by a safety pin for attachment to a beret ?
    I always thought it was a nurses issue being plated.

    Cheers for that info. Luke. You sure know your stuff back to front.

    ooooh now that changes things LOL

    What you have is a sweetheart badge, The hat badge has had the lugs removed the safety pin added and has been been chromed. He probably made It for his mum, wife or girlfriend

    - - Updated - -

    Either that or it was already a chromed badge turned into a sweetheart... Still a great badge though

    I had best explain what I am posting today are "unknowns" or items I am not comfortable in displaying at the club as I am not sure of them. Also Items I have as "spares" as I call them. Doubled up in my collection.

    The safety pin attached to the "Rising Sun" has been soldered on with a high silver content low melting point silver solder. Could be a sweetheart as the cut off lug "stumps" appear to have been plated after it was removed.

    Yeah mate It was really common for the diggers to do this, especially with a collar badge and a shoulder title they would solder the two together and chrome it... If i had my bloody camera I would post some examples... I will give it a go on my phone If the photo's don't suck i will post some pictures up

    A bit moth nipped but. We should move all Australian cloth items to Tassie as we don't seem to have the same issues with hungry moths down here. . I'll look after it all for you blokes, no worries

    The 7th Divi pug came from the big Island.
