I assumed this was a post about a track by the popular beat combo "Cream"

What badge is this ?

I doubt if I fulfill the criteria in any way.

Shouldn't that be Esteemed Chess Fellow?

Esteamed Chess Fellow would be more accurate.

I suspect that you are being unduly harsh on yourself. It may just be that by the time they reached the "u"s they had run out of Jiffy bags.
I say this based on the evidence in front of me which suggests that by the time they reached the "t"s they still had Jiffy bags and letters but had run out of badges. Still, it's the thought that counts.
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

Brian
Look no further for the culprit than me. I ordered the badges, OK'd the design, queried and obtained the funds, created the list, set up the mail merge, printed the labels, stuck the labels on the jiffy bags and organised the posting. I was not solely responsible for putting the letters and badges in the bags, but it would be churlish of me to blame my 1-point-4 colleagues in this instance - it's a fair cop, it falls to me to make it right. A badge will be in the post tonight 1st Class, with my apologies and the gratitude of the ECF.

Am I the only non-recipient curious to see what this 'badge' looks like?
Can someone post a photo of it?

I'll need to know what I'm looking out for on my future eBay searches :)
