Default World War 2 plastic badges

First off, I'm not sure if this is the right area for this question so if not, please move to wherever is.

My question is this, does anyone know if a definitive list exists of plastic badges that were made? I'm curious as to how many would constitute a full set of said badges.

I don't know about definitive, but I think Marcus Cotton's two partner article has been transcribed to a thread on this forum.

Edit - link to thread, detail posted by Voltigeur, KLR says "definitive":

See my plastic album for pictures of the British ones and a short list of those missing from my collection.

Thanks for the information. A lot more badges than I thought then!

Default Plastic badges

Alan,

What about the Hertfordshire Regt? There are no references to this badge among lists of plastic badge contracts in SUPP4 files at Kew. However, on
28.04.10. a specimen was sold at Bosleys for 710. It had broken blades.

Stephen.

Both Monmouths and Hertfordshires do not seem to have gone into production so the 2 examples in Hugh King's collection may well have been trial pieces.
