British Army Trade, Proficiency & Skill at Arms Badges

  • Between the wars the "letter" proficiency badges of WW1 became metal in either oxidised or gilt finish. They were worn on the lower sleeve in most cases. 
  • Most badges had pin fasteners but some had a backing plate as shown with the marksman badge, above lower right.
