    Default Royal Artillery gun badges 1902 onwards

    Just for the sake of it really and because I was answering a question asked elsewhere, but most of my RA gun badges for caps.

    What is extra nice with these is that 4 of them are on their original caps.

    The top row all have the wheel as a separate part and should in theory revolve, but don't actually move, the bottom left has lost its wheel, the bottom middle revolves, bottom right is a one part version without a moving wheel.

    I love these badges and have two or three myself. I have a friend who has been collecting for many years and he has a big board of different RA badges, the idea being to collect one of each type. He soon gave it up though when he realised the sheer enormity of the task, lol

    A little outside the scope of this thread I know, but still a variation not that often seen. My subdued white metal cap badge in my original Kangol beret, last worn on patrol in New Lodge, Belfast in October 1974.
