Default SEARCHING FOR NEPALESE HENS TEETH

Well thanks for looking and now that I have your attention I can turn to the serious reason for this post. I am searching for:

Marsh AAE06 - Boys Company, Brigade of Gurkhas Cap Badge

This is to complete a collection of Gurkha AA (Staybrite) cap badges that I have been putting together for the last few years.

If anyone has one they would sell from their collection (spare or otherwise) or can give me a lead on one then I would be truly thankful.

Please message me if you can help in this quest.

Best Regards
Steve

Steve,Chris's list of Gurkha badges isn't complete. There are other known examples beyond what's in the book.

Hi Steve, there are a number of manufacturers and slight variations of the A/A Gurkha Badges - I believe there are two versions of the 7th (one with a solid cypher) - there is another version of the large 10th (with solid cypher between the strings of the bugle ) There's an early version of the Gurkha Engineers which is all silver and with lugs. There is also a 2 part version of the Gurkha Signals badge (v rare) - an example of which is being offered on the forums For Sale section for 45 incl P&P ( by me! ) - Also I have an A/A Gaunt Boys Company badge that I might be persuaded to let go - PM me and make me an offer. Cheers Tim

Hi Tim
just tried to pm you but got an error message saying that you do not accept pms or that you are unable to accept pms……
Tried again, hope you get it.
