OTC badges

There seems to be no lacking of money for OTC badges of all kinds at the moment, possibly two or three collectors building up collections in competition with each other.

Cool Kangaroo metal shoulder title

Thanks Dan for pointing this thread out, so maybe not an attempt at Great War trench art, but possibly earlier.
