  1. I read it. Shame the British section of this forum is all but dead.
  2. I cant send you a pm for some reason. Graham

    Happy Birthday Wishes

    Many thanks Marcus. Yes a good day and got a couple of 7th Dragoon Guards badges. W/M 1898 TO 1906 and G/M 1906 to 1922. Graham.
  4. The voided lower tail feathers on the 26th Hussars is an interesting variation. That gives me something to keep an eye out for. The only WRC badge I have picked up lately is this 25th Dragoons OSD collar badge.

    Not overly long David. Your thoughts ?
  6. I had no idea what this was when I bought it. The EOF rang a bell but that was about it. Looking at it when I got home the penny dropped I was looking at crossed mortar bombs. I bought it in Woburn Bedfordshire and the seller said it had come from a house clearance with a Bedfs & Herts Regt sweetheart badge. This leads me to think EOF is Elstow Ordnance Factory. I posted it on another forum and have been advised PAD is Passive Air Defence. Graham.
  7. Found this grotty MKIII outside an antique shop. Purchased for £20. I made a few spiders homeless when I took an airline to it to blow the years of cobwebs out. The original paint has been painted over in a desert sand colour and again in green. Remains of decals [RA ?] can be seen. Found the makers detail TTC on the MKII liner. Dated 194?. Why is it always the last number that is hard to read ! Graham
  8. My 25th Dragoons slip on shoulder titles. Top. Officers. Mid. o/r's. Worn on everything except walking out dress and dress blues. Bot. o/r,s. Worn on khaki drill for walking out.
  9. Generally the Home Guard wore the cap badge of their local county infantry Regiment. For a more indepth look at HG insignia I would suggest you try to get hold of a copy of John Mills and Terry Carney's book, 'In the space of a single day'. The insignia and Uniforms of the LDV and Home Guard 1940-1944 and 1952-1956. Graham
  10. Thanks for the reply to this old post Anthony. I had not seen the other badges before. A very different format to the First Sea Lord badge. Graham.
  11. A recent gift from Marcus. (Many thanks). An osd, die struck bronzed collar badge. (Left). With an o/r's for comparison.
  12. That picture has not come out well. Downloaded from my phone. Seem to get better results from my laptop. Marcus, I was thinking the w/m collar badge was officers. [Going by Seamans]. Graham.
  13. Here are all my 24th Lancers so far.
  14. I have recently picked up another 24th Lancers OSD collar badge which completes the set.
