Hi I bought a copy as a present for a friend but, having looked at it, I'm seriously tempted to keep it. It certainly sets the standard for a regimental badge book, best wishes Mike

Hi AATTV, I think Vincent has it correct, the blue colour on Moldovian badges tends to be a lighter shade. The excellent site Kokosar identifies it as "contract worker" but sometimes the meaning gets...

Hi, thanks for all the replies. there is no doubt they are post 1950 and probably later, other than the fact they came with the RAC badge I would not have bothered with them. Still open to...

RAC badge plus strange cloth.

Hi, just got these. The badge is OK but what are the cloth flashes? They look fairly modern and the white thread glows. Are they someone's idea of arms of service stripes or are they something else?...

9th, 12th and 9/12th Lancers query.

Hi, got these yesterday, any ideas? The ovals are 160 x 130mm and were part of a display. Were they made for the display, or did they originally have some other use? thanks in advance Mike

Hi, the slidered RTR badge was quite short lived. After the war the powers that be decreed all badges should be slidered. The RTR objected having gone through all this in 1923, after a while and a...
