Default What can you get for 2 ???

Hi all yesterday picked up these could have had quite a lot more items but why? This was all the Military and what piqued my interest I love the Engineering behind the "1902 King Edwards Broach " Not Military but nice!

What are the Wreaths? Also the Foreign badges?

There is a nice "For King and Empire - Services Rendered" with the number :- B283986 any ideas someone might have information on this please?

The Buckinghamshire Hussars is a bit on the Ropey side, rough but I think a sand cast badge the paint is what is giving it the roughness, may have to clean this gently but you can see the brass shining through in places.

I love the King Edward the 8ths broach and the holder, needs a clean to see if Silver which I assume it is!

Love to hear your thoughts and for 2 I am well amazed

Billy, I believe the badge with the three lions is Danish, possibly police.

That is an awful lot for two quid, the SWB, although, broken is still worth rather more than that!
