Sad news, Cedric is such a knowledgeable chap and has always been willing to share that knowledge freely.

That is very sad news indeed. I have bought from him on many occasions and I have always found him a great seller to deal with.

I've just been informed that Cedric Heys, proprietor of "Badges of the World" sadly passed away a short time ago whilst at home. He had been ill since July and had slowly deteriorated over a period of time. He came home a couple of weeks ago and it was hoped that he'd turned a corner, but it was not to be.

RIP Cedric.

Dave.
