Spotted this item in the upcoming Dix Noonan & Webb auction catalogue
An unattributed Hong Kong circular silver brooch, 59mm, silver, the reverse with Hong Kong marker's mark and silver mark 'W.H. 90', the badge of skeletal form comprising an outer garter with crowned cypher to centre, with reverse fixing pin, good condition
It looks to me like the cypher of 29 Cdo Regt, RA mounted in the garter often used for clan crests, many of which were likely made in Hong Kong back in 1990. Possibly an unofficial custom one-off produced internally within the unit as a sweetheart badge or similar?
Anyone seen one of these before?
