If so which regiment?
The badge looks like a German Bundeswehr cap badge - I'm sure I've seen them on fairly modern peaked caps
Thank you for your opinion, but your answear makes me even more confused. German has also been on my mind though.
German Army (Crossed Swords In Oak Wreath) army cap badge is an example of the badge I am thinking of, it does look a good match
It's a pretty good match, but I'm not convinced. The oak nuts are missing.
Is it ww2, or is my late father playing games with me?
Its hard to make out from the photos but the acorns look the same, maybe a wee bit worn down so the detail is lost though - can you add a close up of the badge? I've no idea how to check the date of the bugle itself. The badge isn't like anything British I've seen
Copper & brass mounted bugle with applied Bundeswehr cross sword badge is similar but with the badge the other way up (and different cords)
I'll make a new photo with higher resolution, and post it late on Sunday.
The cord are in the german flag colours, red, black and yellow plus white.
My father told a friend of him that he was in Berlin in 45, but I don't know if it's true.
Quality isnt there ,theres similar bugles been posted on here. Reproduction made in India or China? Heres one from Australia claiming to be Civil war!
Learned a new word bugle, so I’m now able to google. Most likely a replica? Thank you
I have a exactly the same kind of bugle in my possession with a poor reproduction of Canadian army the cap badge. Some time you can find with other ones with ugly copies of cap badges from different units. As far as I know these are reproductions of British army bugle made in Pakistan in the 70’s-80’s.
Most likely reproduction, yes.
They were certainly making replicas of SMLE then - people could display them as a "trophy their brave and resourceful father/grandfather had taken from the British".
