Default Hankow British Volunteer Corps

An officers bronze Hankow British Volunteer Corps cap badge together with a China 1900 medal to Private A.R. Burtenshaw of the Hankow British Volunteer Corps. Only 32 names on the medal roll ! A nice badge modelled on the Shanghai Volunteer Corps cap badge. If anyone has any other badges to the Hankow Volunteers, I would like to hear from them.

The only other insignia I've ever seen to the corps is a brass shoulder title - illustrated in Renfrews Vol 2 ( Your badge is illustrated in Vol 1 ) - the shoulder title reads H.B.V.C - Tim
