The Bedfordshire Regiment Edwardian Other Ranks Bi-metal Cap Badge, long slider
A gorgeous die struck bi-metal cap badge with a very long original slider, with three sweat / braising holes to the reverse of the scroll, in near mint condition. This pattern worn until 1919, but replaced with the short slider once the Brodrick cap fell out of fashion.
