Details

Metal rank (excluding chevrons), trade and skill-at-arms badges replaced worsted badges in 1918. Originally of brass or gilding metal, oxidized badges were introduced for Citizen Forces and Senior Cadets in 1921. Permanent Forces continued to wear badges of brass or gilding metal. In 1931 oxidized badges appear to have been discontinued with all badges being of brass or gliding metal.

The hammer and pincers badge was worn by armourers, fitters, machinery artificers, armament artificers, and smiths.
