Hi Bess, there are at least 4 types that I know of. For convenience I have labeled them A,B,D and E, not having found a staybright C type, though B and C types seem the more common. I'm back at work...

Hi, it is a second pattern Q/C badge. Both first and second pattern exist in staybright so it wouldn't have been superseded but probably was an officer's or a private purchase, best wishes Mike

Hi Leigh, you may well be right, I instantly regard anyone poking a dragon with a lance as St George but you are right the archangels also got in the act, best wishes Mike

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

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
