Hi, I am thinking about starting a Princess Irene Brigade unit here in the states. I can find the Nederland Lion and shoulder patches but am having a hard time finding the metal Lion cap badge. I would appreciate any information on where to locate these.

Thank you

The metal ones have been difficult to find. For our outing badged as PIB for the Royal Netherlands Army open days in Oirschot, home of the PIB museum, in 2006 I think, we bought some plastic copies, which worked well, unless inspected from close by.
May be able to find more of the plastic ones.

War time never saw any plastic badges with the Dutch lion, unlike the British replacements to save metal which were made for most of the units.
The plastic ones we found are a private thing done in the eighties or nineties.
