Default Collections

I mainly collect RAF, ROC and ATC but also have smaller collections of commonwealth Air Forces. Always looking for items such as Boy Entrant/Apprentice hatbands, Cranwell gorgets etc.

I also collect worldwide medal ribbons and have an extensive collection.

Default My collection

Just to add to the thread. I am now ex Royal Australian Artillery (1995-2016). I collect Commonwealth artillery badges in the style of the Royal Artillery badge ie the post 1902 design. I have just about (will have to recount) 360 different variants from 22 Commonwealth countries and colonies. I know there are others I have missed on buying because some collectors have deeper pockest than me and I didn't think I could slip a payment passed my wife!! I am looking to get a better digital camera with a decent macro lense so I can record them and possibly post to a website for others to view and comment on as I don't have the history on many of them. A concern for me now is what to do with this collection when I pass on, but hopefully that's a few years off at the moment.

Default Canadian WW2, Korea and Rhodesia

I have just started collecting. I began with my father's unit (WW2 Canadian Forestry Corps), then my uncle (Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, Korea). I have yet to find details on another uncle from WW2. I remember my father said he was a mechanic of some sort.

My Rhodesian interests stem from a former girlfriend and tales related by her family.

Hello to all, I am a relatively new member and badge collector from Bradford West Yorkshire, who likes to collect WW1 cap badges and shoulder titles. Inparticularly Machine Gunners, Yorkshire Regiments, Palls Battalions and other assorted badges that take my fancy such as skills and proficiency insignia,I also have a few uniform buttons to display with the cap badges and shoulder titles.
I have a reasonable knowledge on the subject picked up from various books, forums and visits to badge and medal fairs,but have occasionally been duped by the odd re strike and good copy.
I usually ask about provenance before purchase, but in some cases this can not be relied on as factual we all well know.
Although at this time my collection is relatively small (115 pieces), some of them are quite nice and even desirable.
I also collect Britain and Thomas Gun military figures, and various pieces of memorabilia, all pertaining to WW1.
