Default N04

I've tried putting all these items on one page but for some reason they won't upload,hence each individual list.

N0 4 A collar badge of the 2nd King Edwards Horse,something I've looked for over the years.

Default N06

N06 a battered to hell OR'S cap badge of the 1st Life Guards,strangely with no voiding in the crown.It has crudely repaired /replaced blades,but as other contributors have mentioned regarding their own favourites,it's charm is that this is a "been there and done it" badge.

Delighted to see your contribution. Some lovely stuff there.
Hopefully we'll see top 20's popping up here and there for some time to come!

Thanks Ryan,

The missus has already told me off about the poor quality of my (point-and-shoot) photography. She promises to take a better photo with her proper camera at some point.

Great to see the top twenty feature still popping up every so often! Remember to keep them coming. Always great to see them and read the stories and reasons behind them.

Because I start collecting Royal Dublin Fusiliers items just around an year ago (I picked up my very first RDF award last May from Cork and insignia side I started in August, when I bought first RDF cap badge). So, it's hard to choose 20 items out from so small collection:



However, here is some of my favorite items:


An officer's collar



Royal Dublin Fusiliers silver match box



2nd Battalion presentation of colours leaflet

__________________
I am always looking early (pre 1939) British ribbon bars with foreign awards; interesting devices or just different construction solutions. Also I am seeking Royal Dublin Fusiliers items. I can help in small scale to research RDF soldiers (MICs, medal rolls, additional information, etc).
