Default British anodised badges: help needed

Rather a strange request.
I have been collecting 1899-1945 British badges for many years and can claim a reasonable knowledge of them. About 30 years ago I bought a large assorted collection which included a tin of anodised badges, and they have stayed in the tin ever since, plus whatever others fell from the sky. I know nothing about them. Which are rare? Which were disbanded and when etc etc
Can anyone can direct me to a link which shows sets of anodised badges? It might be time to empty the tin and put them on a card. I could even leave space for missing ones in case they also fall from the sky in the next 30 years!
Thanks.

Hagwalther's book on British Anodised Badges is a good reference.

You can look through mine if you like.

Let's do a catchup sometime.

You really need to get them out and post a picture . I can see a few corps badges and some others too.

Thanks all for your help, will do further research. Obviously I need the book.
Is it possible to see pictures of the Cuniffe badges? All I can find on my computer is the list.

It seems that the badges are not on trhe ebsite where they should be.

Broken website

You could try the e-mail address there to inform him of that.

Verry strange. I us Firefox btw.

I get empty frames with an icon that informs tha tthere should be a picture there. When I rightclick there and ask to show the picture (that will then normaly be shown in the browser as the picture alone), I get:
Quote:
Not Found

The requested URL /.\Anodised Territorial_files\0013.jpg was not found on this server.
which is consistent which the empty frames.

I think I have an explanation (sort of). When I take that URL:
Code:
http://www.smle.army-cap-badges.talktalk.net/.\Anodised%20Territorial_files\0001.jpg
and change that into:
Code:
http://www.smle.army-cap-badges.talktalk.net/Anodised%20Territorial_files/0001.jpg
by making the idiot \ into / (and removing the superfluous ./ at the beginning), it loads.

And indeed, when you look into the source code of the web page:
HTML Code:
<p align="center"><img src=".\Anodised Territorial_files\0001.jpg" width="128" Height="155" BORDER="2"></p>
Which is outright wrong!.

Apparently, when you have a Windows system and/or a MS browser, something is "repairing" that on the flight.

(I use not only Firefox, but it runs on Linux (openSUSE))

Default Loading web page

Thanks for the corrections, I did succeed in loading the pictures one at a time. Is it possible to open a whole page at a time?

That depends very much on your skills in IT and of course in the operating system and thus the tools you have available.

You could store the whole page in some file and then use an editor to change all the \s into /s. And then load the edited page in your browser. That is roughly what I would try. But as the URL inside the page is relative to the URL of the page, you have to make them absolute to point from your local stored page to the remote pictures. Which requires to change the .\ (or maybe ./ after the first action) in http://www.smle.army-cap-badges.talktalk.net/

To take my example from above:
Code:
<p align="center"><img src=".\Anodised Territorial_files\0001.jpg" width="128" Height="155" BORDER="2"></p>
must be replaced by
Code:
<p align="center"><img src="http://www.smle.army-cap-badges.talktalk.net/Anodised Territorial_files/0001.jpg" width="128" Height="155" BORDER="2"></p>
and that for all img specifications in the page.

There will most probably be more of those URL pointers (not to images) inside the page. When you do not change them, the page will miss some items, but the pictures will be there. When you want it in full glory, you have to change all the other URLs also.

But, as advised earlier, an e-mail to the web-master might help him to repair his site.

Yes, we found that out above. But it should not only show fine in IE. It should show fine in all standards obeying web browsers.

When you have a problem like this, there can be two who are guilty. The page is wrong or the interpretation is wrong (or both). But in this case it is clear that those URLs are wrong. and that the pages that contain them are thus wrong.

BTW, as an extra I asked the WWW Validation Service to check that page. The result is here:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...Inline&group=0
560 Errors! and those faulty URLs are not amongst them (because they fell out of the scope of the HTML syntax as such).
