I think that the internet has changed everything as people now tend to "publish" on a website rather than in book form. I once spent several years researching the 320 names on the local war memorial...

What jars for me is the use of the word 'original' in the description. It is redundant unless the writer of the description is trying to prove a point. Surely, a "Desert Rat badge from Jackie...

I do not think that the badge that you have shown was an officially issued British Indian Army badge. It is certainly not a regimental badge. It appears to be a trade badge and I wonder if it was a...

8th Punjab Regiment buttons.

Are these 8th Punjab Regiment buttons? I have seen other confirmed 8th Punjab Regiment buttons where the "eight" is more angular. There are no maker's marks on the reverse.

Here is another XIVth Army (3rd Indian Armoured Division) photograph but no insignia is visible as none is being worn. The number 41 or 47 on the mudguard may help to identify the unit.
