    Big Ned

    I was saddened to hear of his passing, gone but not forgotten Ned, RIP
  9. Had these since my Father passed away in 1993. He was a WWII vet who served with the Royal Corps of Signals before, during and after the war and was a WOI (warrant officer first class) when he left. He was mentioned in Dispatches for carrying a wounded trooper to safety whilst under enemy fire and on another occasion was himself wounded by shrapnel when the troopship he was on was attacked by Torpedo. The badge is the plastic war time economy issue. I also have two pictures of him in the Western Desert and on the reverse of the picture with the wine bottles,it says on the reverse, "these wine bottles WERE full", implying that they had drunk the wine!
  10. bumping my late fathers medals, it think this was the first post in this section on this forum
  11. A thread to share your British military themed post cards. My small collection, mostly circa WWI, but a few from the interwars period.
  12. it has been ages since i added any here, this post card for the south wales borderers is my most recent acquisition, dating to between the 1880's and 1905 during the period when they wore white collar and cuffs rather than pale green.

    Iraq Levies

    Two locally made cast silver officers badges, one on a long slider for the slouch hat, the other pin back for the beret, also one other ranks brass cap badge and two shoulder strap devices. Came as part of a group which included a formation sign for Persia & Iraq Force (also known as P & I command). WWII period, they became a parachute unit in 1942.
  15. as already stated usa interwars liner, in very good condition
  16. Well worth getting, lord knows how long before the book on British combat helmets will ever take to come out, but most of the info on liners and lugs etc is all in this one.
  17. this really is a wonderful thread.
  18. I'll give you a shout next time I am in Berlin.
  19. that is very kind of you Rich, but there is no need. I do get to Berlin every few years, not sure when the next time will be, maybe not for a while.
