    These are probably one of the most undesireable awards in the whole of the TR collecting field for whatever reason. Maybe the lack of swastika or maybe they don't inspire collectors as they are a fairly 'bland' design and not the best executed (in my opinion). I feel they missed a trick with these badges, they could've made them a whole lot better when you put them alongside other 'qualification' or merit awards.

    Like the poor old Dental Corps that used to get booed when they marched ( so I was told ) the drivers were an integral part of the army - horse drawn or mechanised - but didn't get the respect they deserved ....... same as today, engineers vs salesmen - who gets the glory? ( and bottles of wine at Xmas ) ...

    Thanks for all your comments......it's still a great badge, just like Army drivers, understated and not flashy! Just getting the job done

    Just thought I would re-energize this old thread with a recent pickup of a silver version of ( as has been said ) "one of the most undesireable awards in the whole of the TR collecting field"

    Still, there are some of us who cheer for the underdog

    We don't see alot of these get posted and I always tell myself that I should collect the Gold?Silver/Bronze one day but never get around to it.

    Curious to read that these are faked alot?

    If so, what are the things to watch out for?
