Default HVDC Title

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows who in the Kong Hong Volunteer Defence Corps would have worn this R/HVDC metal shoulder title?

Regards,

Mick

It dosesnt feature as one of the several similar HVDC titles in 'British Colonial Badges' by Renfrew & Cranston, but I would speculate the 'R' is for Reserve.

Hi Simon,

Yeah I did notice that as well. Not sure about 'R' for Reserve though as the HKVDC were primary a reserve organisation.
