  1. I have recently acquired this cast, Indian made, second pattern, 26th Hussars cap badge.It is on lugs. Not sure if one has been replaced as such but they are certainly different. I have pictured it with my first pattern cast badge and my [Gaunt] die struck badge. Graham
  2. Another recent addition. A 24th Lancers OSD collar badge.
  3. http://tank-photographs.s3-website-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/Houfflaize-panther-tank-1944-battle-bulge-ww2.html This is the tank that has stood for many years in Houfflaize. It will return there once restored.The tour guide told us that some personal items and a small amount of human remains have been found inside.
  4. The Hallmarked pair are very nice. Graham.
  5. Been awhile since I have added anything to the collection. I bought this pair of 'S' marked silver and gilt officers 22nd Dragoons collar badges recently. I have pictured them with the single I already have to show the different construction and positioning of the 'S'. Graham.
  6. Some of my holiday snaps.

    This is the other side of the Sherman in the Bastogne museum. Viewed from the rear of the tank. Must have been a massive explosion inside the Sherman.
