Del,
Yes, but not to the same extent that you do. You have some nice stuff.
About 80% of what I have is in one of my albums, I need to track down the rest and get some pictures done.
Why to the question?

I'm after 1930/1940s King's Crown HKP badges

My grandfather was in the HK Police and was interneed in HK during WW2.

Default HKP Insignia

Prior to WW2 the Senior Officers of the HKP wore a silver Royal Cypher as their cap badge,the Inspectorate and Rank and File (all races) wore a simple Kings Crown in white metal.With the post war re-organisation of the Force and the re-establishment of civilian rule, 1.5.1946, a new badge was adopted,this contained the well known harbour scene,surmounted by the King's Crown,all in white metal and later (1969) to be replaced by a chrome and blue enamel version bearing the Queen's Crown and the " Royal " element.
Genuine versions of the Post War (King's Crown ) appear occasionally in dealers' catalogues and fetch up the GBP100.00,BEWARE many HK made reproductions.

Currently I got a basic collection of Hong Kong Military Service Corps (HKMSC) militaria and some Hong Kong regiment badges. Still hunting for earlier versions though.
