A Sand Cast Maker Marked Other Ranks Badge 1943

Type 38 Other Ranks Badge

Another example of a ‘bazaar’ made or sand cast badge made in India, this time by the Eden Company. 

The no 43 denotes the date the badge was made i.e. 1943 which would date this badge to WW2 and would have been purchased locally by someone from the 8th or 9th Battalion who were stationed in India at the time.
