    R.E. Bomb disposal honour badges

    Hey guys.
    I was wondering if anyone could shed a better light on this subject. All the small grainy pictures in any books I've seen do not show clear enough.
    From the institution of the badge (Dec 1940) thru the years. Does anyone have early examples that they would post and share here? I'd really enjoy seeing what the earliest variations are. I'm posting this pic of some I own and a few I've pulled off the net. I've numbered them..and I do know that they are not in order or which came first. The bottom two are current reproductions available. So if anyone would like to comment on this..and better yet...post pics of their badges/batttledress/etc , I'd appreciate it
    Cheers! Charlie

    Thanks Steve...and Spotter.
    Looking at the chart I made... I noticed I put the number "3" on two different badges. I'm assuming the Belgian EOD badge is the first one on the second row(Black fins)...right ?
    O.K. WWII issue is the square badge with black bands.
    We all know what the current style is. So next question...Where would that put # 1, #3(top row), and #4 in line of succession between WWII and current? If I had to guess...it would be #3 then #1 then #4 ? Any thoughts ?
