Army Cyclist Company - Australian but not Camel Corps.
Still a scarce pair of titles

thanks guys
the titles and the badges sold for a tidy sum
IMO there was only one 100% genuine badge and that had no lugs.
the others needed heaps of provenance
the titles are nice but for that price?

I agree with that comment and with no lugs not a bad price .

Rare badges indeed...

The titles recently sold do not look like my genuine one in the other thread. They are certainly NOT 'Australian Catering Corps' (no such animal). Without provenance no one can be sure whether the titles or any of the camel badges (apart from the die-struck collar badge) are genuine. Perhaps they are. It was a good sign that such a large lot turned up together.

Australian catering Corps was a Tongue in Cheek remark :p
