I will dissect the ply wood away from around the blades of the Officers and CPO cap badges and then remount with inserts at the rear to hold the badge on without having to bend the blades, cheers Dean.

Thanks Dean, looks like a nice original tally

It is very difficult to disply cap tallies on a board. Unfortunately, some collectors have opted to stapling them on and I have also seen some dealers opting for this method also Worse still, some people cut them down and then staple or pin to their display. This is like cutting the shank/ lugs off a cap badge and then nailing it to a board.

Thanks for showing,

Andy

Thanks for the confirmation on the cap tally Andy. I am going to leave it in place and add some collars to the board, am sure I will find a Benbow and Collingwood titles to add in time!

Cheers Dean

Default RND mini collection

Just a reminder that there is no such thing as an RND Chaplains badge!

The metal chaplains badge that is often assumed to be a cap badge for chaplains with the RND is not. It is a lapel badge issued to chaplains serving with the fleet or in naval establishments. Naval chaplains didn't wear any uniform so had problems with sentrys and members of the public demanding to know why they weren't in uniform! The badge was intended to be worn on the lapel of civilian suits or clerical garb.

The other thing to remember is that this badge wasn't introduced until April 1918. By this time there were no RN Chaplains serving with the RND in France. Long before this date naval chaplains had been replaced by army chaplains in all units of the RND on the Western Front. I suppose that naval chaplains would have been attached to the RND training depots in the UK but there would only have been one or two of these - and many naval chaplains refused to wear the new badge as its design wasn't popular.

The only reason I mention this is because I have known so many RND collectors who have spent a lot of time and money trying to track down an example of the 'RND' chaplains badge - only to find it isn't! Still, it is a nice, scarce badge.

Time to get off my high horse!

Pete

Thanks Pete that is very useful information and saves me fretting about sourcing one for a representative WW1 collection. I shall instead focus on a genuine RND MGC badge, cheers Dean.

Smile RND additions

Hi all,

Weeded out RND MGC and RNAS badges until I chance upon genuine examples but have added some more titles - pair of Collingwood ones now.

I presume that collar badges were not opposing ?

Cheers Dean

Thanks Alex,

Best not mention Benbow - I missed a framed set a couple of years ago with a Benbow title amongst it. At a price per badge and title that was well worth it but too much in one go on the day. Now I just watch and wait, they are a great themed set, cheers Dean.

As much as I would like a Collingwood and Benbow as they never made it the Western Front where my main interest lies i cannot justify the cost. Oh well.....

I believe I mentioned this a few years ago and never got an answer. Not my line of collecting but any thoughts on this title, genuine or fake?

I'll leave the front to those who actually know something, but the lugs look like what you'd expect?

Cheers, Tim
