Thanks, gentlemen. This last would certainly suggest that they did wear a version of it.

I have a GM crossed MG badge, 35mm wide, which appears to have had something (a crown?) clipped from the upper quadrant. I've long suspected that it was used as a metal substitute for the yellow...

Many thanks for both replies. Certainly the HCR badge is very hard to come by, so it makes sense that they would have worn their own regimental badges.

Household Cavalry WW2 question

Did the ORs in the WW2 Household Cavalry armoured car regiments wear the specific GviR HCR cap badge, or their own LG and RHG badges? I know this may seem to fall into the category of 'the bleeding...

Hi Guys,
Can you clarify for an ignorant Aussie what you mean by 'continuous scroll', please? I'm very curious to know what might have been the WW2 specific badge.

I think one of my New Year's resolutions should be to make a concerted effort to finish off putting together a collection of Sth Aust militia and CMF insignia. Oh my poor wallet!

Stay right away from these things, guys -- whether printed or woven, they are complete fantasy items. They are depictions of vehicle signs, and were never worn.

Easier said than paid for! Besides, I've only ever come across the patch once, and that was on an officer's tunic at an auction in Adelaide. I was the under-bidder.

Thanks, Mick. The photo studio was in Nuriootpa. Every time I see it I want to go chasing all the insignia for the 18th LH (not to mention a nice glass of red!).

10th Bn AIF member

This photo has written on the back, 'Sanford of the 10th Batt. "A" Coy. Please keep for me.' While I can't find a 'Sanford', there were three Sandfords in the 10th. This is almost certainly 738 Pte...
