Tyneside Irish S/Ts

Good afternoon.

Whilst some people might pay such sums for Reid marked S/Ts they can be, and are frequently are, found for far less.

Do not pay more than GBP75 under any circumstances: just be...

Hallmarked silver 1st., 2nd., 3rd. & 4th. Aberdeenshire R V glengarry badges.

Good evening.

Well, over 200 views and none but Mr B vouching an opinion. I was sure the great and the good would all be rushing in to illustrate versions of the missing badge. Bother.

Now, if...

Good afternoon.

Does anybody have a set of the above?

This has to be a leg pull, yes?

Good afternoon.

Let me get this right: you want me to explain what is wrong with a Berks IY cap badge hallmarked London 1980?

Hallmarked silver Berkshire IY? Well yes, but no!

The Fifth Fusiliers and its Badges. 2nd Ed.

You won't get it through Amazon. They wanted 60% of the sale price. Hence, when you log onto Amazon you will see it is "Unavailable", which is odd because I'm sitting here looking at...

A funny thing happened on the way to the trenches!

Not really my thing, but again, lets look at a few facts.

To avoid being sniped? You reckon? That's why its found in gilt then?

Has no one yet got the right answer to this yet?

This is easy, entry level stuff. And no, I don't think you will find its Berkshire. That's six points: check out the hallmarked...

It's Friday. I have a cold(ahhhhhhh..!). I've had a long week dealing with idiots. So, in an idle moment I have a quick trawl. Oh, deep joy, look what I find.
