Beautifully arranged, Tim. Lovely job.

By way of a slight digression; going from top left in your frame, could you please tell me who wore the City of London badges displayed in compartments #2 and #4, please?

Thanks, Mark;

These cases come with the divisions already in. I buy them from a company called just-in-case.biz, in Durham. I then cut mounting board into 52mmx56mm rectangles, nip the corners slightly, and mount the badges on the card. Generally pretty messy behind, but happy with how it displays.


Thanks, JT;

Those are the collar badges that go with the Cap badges immediately preceding them, so compartment 2 is the City of London Volunteer Regiment, and 4 is the City of London VR Corps of Citizens.

All are better illustrated in my VTC Badges in K&K album, https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...hp?albumid=523 if you'll excuse the plug!

Best regards, Tim

Thanks for this, Tim.

How do the collar badges to the CLNG, the Corps of Citizens and the CLVC compare size wise?

Regards.

Cheers, Mark

Default Mounting Board

Hi, Mark;

It's just a standard Mount Board from Art Suppliers / Stationers. The most common is made by Daler Rowney, it comes in sheets up to A1 size, about 1.4mm thick, and in a wide range of colours.

Best regards, Tim

Default London Collars

JT,

All the pictures in the album are on roughly the same size background, so the relative sizes can be seen there. Happy to measure the collars, though:

CLNG - 25mm W x 22mm H
Corps of Citizens - 33mm x 30mm
CLVC - 36mm x 30mm

Best regards, Tim

I've got a lot of my UK badges in plastic storage boxes I've bought at Bunnings (big Aussie hardware chain).
