Smile The Leicestershire Regiment Selection Framed

Hi all,

Guess what I did after the ANZAC Day service?

Put a selection of my Leicestershire badges in one my gilt finish old wooden frames.

Needs some more card at the rear to stiffen, will use some foam board but pretty happy with it next to my Lincolnshire and Durham Light Infantry frames. Although I ironed the felt before I pinned the badges through it and the card I have some nasty wrinkles in the felt from the tension of a tighter slider etc. Still working on best way around that.

Still collecting to them but just will be multiple frames.

Anyway just wanting to share the near-finished product.

Cheers Dean.
