Always, always go through things carefully. I was sent a box of mostly CF rank slip-ons and similar badges. A boot box of the stuff. A few interesting combat titles, cadpat, etc. And maybe a dozen current cap / collar badges. Pulled the ones I needed out, and set the box aside. That was a couple of months ago. Today, it was time to sort it and start disposing. Sorting through the slip-ons, I saw a velcro hanger used on the cadpat. Turned it over and to my delight, two Valiant Guardian patches. It was in a pile of stuff that was going to go in the odds n sods box for shows.
