    Certainly looks to be the early version for the BD. The only ones I have are the printed version.

    You could be correct, it does seem a bit different to some other WWII examples I looked at since I posted.

    Well here they are , on closer inspection they are fairly different from the first one shown . But I thought that could have been from different makers . Would this be a GUN LAYERS badge ? I would also like any more information on these badges .
    Cheers Chris

    Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but could do with some thoughts on these.
    the bullion one has me confused as the design of the cannon is the ww1 era design, and the BD one has me confused as it looks home-made!
    any thoughts or comments appreciated!!
