Hi Mark,

More than welcome to use the picture, as you mentioned I was told it was made straight after the war in Germany, but there's no marks on it.

RWF badge?

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me what I have here?

I'm guessing the Welsh one is a collar badge?

The rank badge looks a bit fancy, is it a guards one?

Thanks a lot,

Thanks Leigh,

It is the usual military shade of olive green and I was assuming the person held the equivalent appointment / status of a Major.

Civilian Component Brassard & Police Badges

Hi All,

I've just got these items and was wondering if anyone can help identify them.

I was thinking they might have been worn by civilian police working in Bosnia but that's just a guess.

Hi Bill,

I'd agree with Tim, as far as I'm aware the full armband was worn up until the late 80's when the large felt patch replaced it on combats.

It has become smaller over the years but...

Hi All,

I went back to the shop and couldn't find an HLI title but did manage to find a Durham one. Would this be correct now or am I still wrong?
