A bit of fun

Two badges, the second of which, might bring a smile.

Lapel Suns

From the same small tin - two sets of lapel badges.

The 4th is much lighter gauge and the lugs are not standard. I've added an extra image to show a different angle.

These items came from a little black tin from my mother. I do mean small - W10cm x D6cm x H4cm. I think it held mostly her father's badges.

36th Aust Heavy Artillery Brigade 1918

The photo (I think) was taken just before the 16th Reinforcements departed from Australia - so maybe in Melbourne early Feb 1918.

If anyone thinks otherwise, I'd love to hear from you.

Can anyone identify Regiment?

If this chap is who I think he is, then he joined the 17th Royal Warwickshire in 1917. Do the insignia support this?

Any help appreciated, thank you.
