Hi guys. Does any one know the around about the age of these 2 pips I have in my collection. I'm lead to believe the design ran prior to ww1 & into ww2. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Wolf.

They could be WW1, WW2 or post-war, hard to say, these look a bit older, so they could be WW2. More commonly used were the cloth embroidered pips, as seen on WW2 battledress, etc. They have a good quality gilding and enamel. Also the split pins look vintage. Maybe someone else can recognise more.

The pip in itself is a miniature of the Order of the Bath, with Motto: Tria Juncta In Uno, and depicting 3 crowns.
