This is Number 8, and yet by the look of it it’s not always been Number 8, its been number something else! The 8 having once been the companion to another digit…….1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9……. How do we know that? Because had the badge originally be number 8, then the number would be over the front fork of the bicycle. Which means there must have been a shortage of number 8 badges, since this one has had to be amended by the appliance of tipp-ex, to erase the other digit! Mind you this was a regular occurrence on ‘the Prisoner’ making a badge into a different number!
Ah, another Number 8 badge that was once another number worn by Rosalie Crutchley in ‘Checkmate.’ But it’s not the same number 8 badge as worn by Wanda Ventham in ‘It’s Your Funeral.’ As in this case not only ahas the other digit or digits been tipp ex-ed out, but also part of the front fork of the bicycle. The properties department for ‘the Prisoner’ must have had a run on number 8 badges!
Be seeing you
