Smile Suffolk Regt Museum

The museum (IWM) at Duxford houses the Royal Anglian Museum and The Cambridgeshire Regt museum, although some of the Cambridgeshire items are housed at a small museum at Ely near the Cathederal.

The Suffolk Regt has a display at Moyses Hall on the market square in Bury St. Edmunds as well as the museum at The Keep.

I hope this helps.

Rob

Not necessarily a guarantee of provenance as many museum's collections include donations of badge with no provenance at all and they are not always correct.

I know that well enough Alan,a friend of mine is the researcher at the Staffords museum in Lichfield. There is a S.Staffs cap badge in one of their displays,i was curious as to whether it was marker marked or not. It wasn't btw.

Mike

It's all too common. I was in one of the Normandy museum's a few years ago and there was a donated collection on display that was full of restrikes. The AAC museum at Middle Wallop has a similar collection on display.

It would be nice to find a sealed pattern card of an a/a Suffolks but I think I am correct in saying that authorisation for production did not result in a sample being made. Hagwalther may be able to elaborate,

Cool QC Suffolk badges

It's doubted whether the QC Suffolk bi-metal badges were ever worn, so the chances of an A/A being worn are remote IMO.

Would I be correct in assuming that the KC badge continued in use with 4th Bn. TA between 1958 and 1961 or did the QC bi-metal badge get a look in before they merged with 1st Bn. Cambridgeshire Regiment?.

Yes, I heard that somewhere as well. There is photographic evidence of this being the case apparently.
