A large cast plated pewter St George above a 'V' with a separate but associated Motto scroll below. This is attractive and would make a great centre piece to your RNF badge display. Central screwpost without retaining nut and with small holes for pins to secure it to a notice board. Not to be confused with a pouch badge. Pre 1968 and probably not something you will find every day.
This is the actual item depicted in the wonderful second edition of Denis Wood's "Fifth Fusiliers and its Badges" (copies still available - see my item for details of how to obtain a copy). See page 169 (No 524B). The item for sale is the same badge as that depcited in the book and comes directly from the author.
A large brass cast silver plated St George above a 'V' and Motto scroll attached below. Some wear to the plate with the brass showing through but still attractive and would make a great centre piece to your RNF badge display. Central screwpost without retaining nut and one out of three securing pins below remaining. Circa 9.5cm tall. Not to be confused with a pouch badge. Pre 1968 and probably not something you will find every day.

British made, in mint condition still in original plastic packaging. Nicely designed with an attractive RRF badge to pinned to centre below the hackle. A clever design, or as we would probably say in the North East - A bobby dazzler!
Possibly a unique find here is a cuir bouilli (boiled leather to make it rigid and hard) musician's pouch, waxed to make the leather glossy. It has the number 69 below a Georgian style crown burnt into the leather (pyrography being the technical term). Brass button retains the flap. Large retaining loop for wear on a waist belt in matching leather to the reverse. No stitching faults. Possible name to reverse but no longer able to work this out. A wonderful early item, museum quality. Circa 8 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide and 1 inch deep. Worn by bandsman / musician.
The 69th Foot were amalgamated with the 41st Foot (Welsh Regiment) in 1881, to form the Welsh / Welch Regiment's second battalion.
On account of it being leather there may be some countries I am unable to post this item to. Please bear this in mind if you live in a country with such restrictions before ordering it. I am unable to post this to the USA.
