    Hi Nacho,

    This badge was in use during WWII and did not change until 1958 when the Yorkshire Brigade badge was adopted by the regiments grouped in that formation. It was also in use during WWI but then there was also a version with lugs rather than a slider. Looking at the way the slider is formed I would say this one is WWII and later.

    I hope this helps.

    Regards

    Mark

    Yes because of the length of time the design was in use but without provenance there really is no way to tell except with experience of what the actual manufacturing details look like especially with the slider. but that is more likely in this case to be the difference between WWI and WWII+.
    In short if you want a WWII example I doubt anyone could say for sure whether this is wartime or post war production.
