Default British Somaliland etc. badge collection from Bosleys :)

New arrivals today (just in time for Easter) : a mix of police and military badges from [British] Somaliland Protectorate, Somalia [f. Italian Somaliland], Ethiopia, & Eritrea [finally had some luck at Bosleys].

For me the cherry is the B.M.A. Somalia cap badge which I'm very pleased to finally get.

Happy Easter

Graham

Thank you Paul, but no, this is how I bought them. It is a fantastic collection, and the police items will be going into my British Military Administration collection.

Very nice lot there! Always rewarding to be able to nab something like that. Totally out of my field, but I can enjoy and appreciate your excitement!
