Terrible, I think you should box it all up and give it to me especially all the badges.

Thank you Tim Very kind of you to say so.

Jerry, you ain't having my REYC badges .

I have modified it now, though. I changed the poster on the right side to A3, its better symmetry

Very nice Phil.

You could quite easily perform The Tommy Cooper hat sketch with that lot.

Regards

Brian

P.S. I suspect you may not remember it though, tooooo young, search on Youtube.

Thank you, Gentlemen

Brian, you are quite right. I will be Googling that in a bit

The posters backing the cabinet, I found they also help to stop reflection. I was especially pleased to find the two relevant hat ones. I have a general liking of vintage, Home Front posters and the like.

Cheers,

Phil

Phil, when I read your first line I was afraid to look at the picture!

Nicely done on the display.

Absolutely wonderful display. Obviously a lot of thought has gone into it and it is a fine display indeed. Cracking.
Cheers
James

Thank you all. It has taken some considerable fiddling about to get it just how i like it

The handcuffs were recently removed from the display, during the revamp, to make way for the CoL SC helmet plate. No whips as yet

Cheers,

Phil
