Hi bc

I guessing that all of these are less than common today, apart from the "new" RAN Female Relatives badges.

Hi Jerry

Interesting to see that one. Mine probably had a pin of some sort but gone now.

Should I handle it with care in case it is "live" or call the bomb squad?

Hi Jon

I have a Brodie style helmet. Tried it out on the cat but it was too small!:D
