    It's got a nasty die flaw in Impune, though that is not always a bad sign and maybe it is a theater made version which would make it more likely to be WWII.

    Here is my example on lugs though, not a slider.

    Were these badges often theater made ? I didn't really notice the flaw until I blew up the photo , it amazing what you can see in these photo's . Thanks for the information .

    Certainly units that served in India or N. Africa commonly had badges made in the theater. The long tapered slider is something I would more likely think was WWI, so a bit of an odd one IMO.
