R A D C/A D C
 
Added some items in my album and gallery only a few new additions ,now difficult to find
A few items may be of interest - officers bullion badge you don't see many of these This was obtained from Mike Wood late 1970's Some older collectors may recognise the name
The H P is also a very scarce item Was offered this in the early 1980 by LT Coln
Wood when he was selling the epworth trust collection I heard on the grape vine that prof Charles Thomas had purchased it. I managed to obtain it when his collection was sold following his death a few years ago. I was told by a member of the museum staff about 40 years ago that 3 only were commissioned for the coronation of GR V Having seen pictures of this in use at earlier dates I don 't think this is correct
A few items on my wants list
Army Dental Corps full wording cloth title
Genuine arm of service stripe
R A F dental hygienist badge
Tri services hygienist badge
Hope badges may be of interest to some
Only 2 had dress shown as the Irish is unusual

Also shown 3 para badges ,one which is down as PRI shop .but is infact from the museum of military medicine is a strange looking one
Finally added the small officers shoulder title as Westlake 399 ,one that I have been after for sometime ,but is the only one that I have seen Have any member one for measurement comparison

David,
Thanks, am I correct in thinking that these ‘new metal’ RADC titles were/are worn with rank badges on epaulettes of the coloured jersey and not on Service Dress?

There are lots of mistakes in all the badge catalogues not just the rank one.
