Would a pair of 20th Hussars silver cufflinks (xHx - similar to cap badge without crown) be of any interest to a Cavalry collector?

Very interesting subject. In the group photograph the Sub-Lieutenant's taste in shirt collars seems to have been stuck in the 19th Century. I wonder why?

Pater,
It's very good to see that pristine and genuine BD blouse. How I wish I had saved my Surrey Yeomanry blouse when I left 287 Fd Regt RA (TA) in 1960 to join the Regular Army. With titles...

I stand corrected, but I'm still amazed! If SASR has a Boat Troop will we see a Jolly Swagman patch? But seriously, I'm grateful for the information.

"Such is Life"

I hope that the "2 Sqn SASR" patch is a joke. The image is obviously Ned Kelly - hardly an Australian military hero!

Very nice. My father served in the AD Corps/RADC from 1940 to the mid 1950s but he never wore on of these. Are the buttons on the cap the simple ADC design or the Dragon and sword?

Air Formation Signals

The basic Air Formation Signals sign came with a bewildering variety of variations including the Regiments' number - between 1, 2 etc to XIII. Some a are very rare.

No image available but a British World War 2 qualification/trade badge worn on Battledress: an Upper Case letter K with a wreath. Perhaps Army Kinematographic Service?

Outstanding. Interesting to see one or two British signs (Western Comd and an AA Div) which the donor may have brought with him when posted to India.
