WW1 Anzac headgear did not have a high survival rate and a battered and mothed example is better than none. I have had this hat in a box for many years and I don't know if it some restoration may be...

Update on Australian Camel Corps badges

I have been going through old files and found some notes I did not know I had. It was the estate purchase in 1974 of some Australian Camel Corps badges that I referred to in the thread. I bought them...

Thanks Mike for the link. The price is right but I don't know enough about US insignia to know which variation was the one used in WW2, probably none of the three. I understand that the detail has...
