Greetings gentlemen

Having just joined, and seeing this thread I thought this might be of interest? It is an Eritrean Railways badge, probably from the British Administration period.



Regards

Hi Dave,
The idea never got off the ground as this site has a problem with copywrite of images taken off the internet. There is a whole section of North East Africa that has a huge military history that is hardly known and the same goes for the insignia. It covers British, French and Italian units and Commonwealth. I dont know where we go from here but hope that we can come up with a way of sharing information and learning more about the subject.

Default British Somaliland Police

I know this is not an 'unknown' badge, but here is the British Somaliland Police cap badge I received a few days ago, together with a small button from the force which I have had for some time. Does anyone know if they wore shoulder titles?
