The ‘D’ Squadron Other Ranks' headdress badge shown in Figures 183-185 is a copy.  The strike of the badge is relatively good, however, at least one of the loops has prominent feet.  

Figures 183-185: A copy of a ‘D’ Squadron (British African) Other Ranks’ headdress badge (KK 1372) in gilding metal with footed, east-west loops.

Copies of the 'D' Squadron headdress badge typically are a poor strike with a lack of the fine lines around the eye and neck.  The majority of copies have footed loops. There are notable differences in size and weight between original and copies.
