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.

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).

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.
