Default Army Veterinary Corps

Another badge that was included in the collection I recently bought, the Army Veterinary Corps in all brass. Was this badge ever issued as an economy?

Your thoughts welcome!

Regards Rob

There was no official all GM issue for the AVC in the 1916 tenders.

Yet I am in no doubt yours and others are genuine period pieces.

Another badge that records (or at least those found to date) do not appear to fully account for.

Luke,
Thanks for your reply I am sure there must be many instances of badges worn that were never recorded, this one will go on my AVC board.

I have one too. You do see them from time to time. A couple have been on eBay the last month or so.

Some ex forum members turned dealers will charge upwards of £60 for the pleasure of owning such a badge.

He buys every single one that shows up on ebay.

Mine was £10 and I think that was a fair price. Creating a scarcity by buying up every one and then charging £60 on the basis that they are 'scarce' smacks of sharp practice and is rather underhand. Hopefully there will come a point where he is left with a drawer full that he cannot sell when collectors refuse to pay such a silly price.

Wink Dealers stock

Unfortunately when a military themed series appears on TV the demand for the appropriate badges becomes more acute. When Foyle's War was on TV a dealer friend of mine was desperate for MTTC badges as worn by Honeysuckle weeks.

Needles to say I still have mine . . !

Rogue Warriors now showing has no doubt influenced those that do not already have an SAS cap badge whether original or not and the demand no doubt has grown.
