British American Squadron Other Ranks' Headdress Badge - Genuine British American Squadron Other Ranks' Headdress Badge - Genuine
A genuine example of the ‘B’ Squadron (British American) Other Ranks headdress badge is shown in Figures 226-227.  This is a brass badge which has been modified to have a large rectangular belt or pouch fitting, made of brass, attached to the back of the badge.  The stumps of the genuine east-west loops are still clearly visible with a small footprint consistent with a loop which lacked broad feet.  The badge is a fine strike to the front and rear with the high points having been polished on this coppery-brass example.
