Tried that Ian...as far as I'm aware, they can be dated by the number of voids....but for the life of me, I cant find the info I need...

 

I'll keep trying mate.

I Have a few Ian, and all different "voids" on them...none of them have marks or date stamps on them....I bought it as a WW2 badge, and have a quite well worn WW2  Glengarry  I want to fit it to, but not if its not authentic, its going to be a gift for an ex Argyll.......:)

Hello Norrie,

Strange they have no makers markings on them, maybe they didn't stamp badges like they did in France and Germany...Don't know really, but I hope you can find out more info on them and please let us know how you get on.

Best Wishes Mate....Desert Rat/ Ian

Thanks Ian, one of the drivers at work is an Ex Argyll, he's going to an Argyll Museum meet at their HQ in Stirling Castle, this week, and is going to ask them there...:)

I will do .....and for the life of me, I cannot think where I got the "void" info.....BUT, there are def lots of different "void" types...maybe re strikes or whatever...will let you know if I/we find out anything...:)

 

Btw, the Museum, which was a corker has had a full refurb, and I am seriously looking forward to seeing it in its new guise...:)
