Thank you Chris, yes, and probably a rare if not unique survivor from those days. I like things like this that fall outside "badge collecting" as they add to the story of both units and individuals.

Thank you Stephen, it will go well with my SG badges - although I'll need a deeper case.

All the best

Graham
