Hi all

On the hunt for my enamel badge that has a blue background with the "C C" picked out in red. Photo to follow.

It had always puzzled me so now I can "put that one to bed"!

Hi

I have a small round enamel badge in blue and red that is more or less the same "C C" surrounded by a wreath. It will be in the "what the heck is this box?" but I'll dig it out.

I think that the phasing out of the button hole fitting must match the decline in the use of button holes on garments such...

Just found a Gaunt example numbered "G 5504" with the date letter for 1967-68 and a button hole fitting.

No helpful little cardboard box with initials on it...

Hi Mike

Fascinating! I think I may have a badge with a "G" number and had always wondered what it meant. Have put my hand on a small 9ct badge that is unnumbered, Gaunt marked with a capital "B"...

Have tried on one of those civilian m.i.d.s that were only issued from 1940-43.

No cracking, but it seems to have reverted to its slightly bent shape after losing its bend for a little time.

Hi Mike

Another really great, informative post. I don't know who had put this "collection" together but they clearly had a reason. The latest poppy in the grouping dates from the late 40's.

Hi all

Here is the grouping mentioned in my last posting (I was going to write "last post" but thought that had a slightly glum tone!)

Poppies from a wee while ago....

Hi Mike and other "poppy pundits"

Thought that you might like to see some older poppies. The 1921 example is easy enough to date but what period would you suggest for the others?
