    Ebay would be the best place to look for a badge!
    But beware for replica's!

    thats a cool find! the liner appears to be post WWII replacement since it's black synthetic material, the WWII liners were usually made of black leather, the metal retaining clips can be easily resewn

    you can get a cheap repro Infantry badge
