    To Mount or Not ??

    I always leave mine as they come to me unless the ribbons have been replaced with the horrible stiff feeling modern copy stuff. I have never had any of mine mounted but I know a lot of collectors do. Perhaps keep the original ribbons and have it done if you want, therefore you could return them to as found.

    Army Air Corps WWII nickle plated
  5. the makers were very short lived post WWII, not at all commonly seen, possibly bogus but an interesting badge, especially if sensibly priced.
  6. try the kharkee web site for dates and variants of webbing. The gaiters might be more narrow in their dates of use. http://www.karkeeweb.com/index.html#home Shame there is no chinstraps visible on the helmets as that might have helped date them

    I need help identifying a British badge

    A lovely and unusual item
  8. Collar badges are wrong for the coldstreams, also I think they have the buttons in pairs. Medal is a QSA as you surmise and the uniform is correct for the Edwardian period Collars are grenades, RE or RA or perhaps less likely one of the Fusilier regiments, though for most of the fusiliers you would be able to see a device on the ball. Hard to add more detail as the features needed are not clear enough to say.
  9. Probably early war home front helmet with greyish green smooth paint before they started only using lower grade marked helmets for home front use.
  10. Textured, = small gritty pieces in the paint as opposed to smooth shiny paint
