Anodised Aluminium:

Even though they were...

...derided, scorned, ridiculed and officially complained about by numerous Colonels and at least one Lieutenant General, anodised aluminium cap badges nevertheless entered service with the British Army from the early 1950's and with an abundance of these badges still in service stocks, it seems that many soldiers will see their continued issue well into the 21st century.

Although these badges are modern, contemporary issue items, reliable information about them is almost unobtainable. Few students of British Army insignia understand their construction or design, how they were made or even which badges were officially authorised for issue.
