Default New Somalia Gendarmerie badge

New arrival today: Somalia Gendarmerie badge on Royal Signals bush hat flash, now sitting happily with its friends. TBH I never thought I'd get one of their badges, never mind three.

Very nice... all three!!! Love it when you get a piece of fabric with a piece. I have a couple of buttons that still have some of the garment attached.

Thanks for sharing,

Terry

Thank you Terry. When I was stationed at RAF Portreath in Cornwall I did some metal detecting and found an RAF cap badge, still with the split pin and cloth between, so obviously someone had lost their cap or beret.

Yes, but what I've spent on badges this weekend would make a married man single very quickly. And trust me, I find them elusive as well LOL.
