OR example of the Bi-Metal cap badge in cast brass and white metal. The ‘Jimmy’ is in white metal and is secured by two rivets, one at the top, at his right hand and the other behind the globe.
The badges were used until 1961 with the Kings Crown. (See the Officer’s Gilt and Silver badge for the explanation, courtesy of Chris Walker).
Below is an example of a left collar of like construction.
