No Frank, I will have to continue being a penniless struggling blogger/photographer a bit longer. Never mind something will turn up, and then there will be lots of nice shiny badges(or not so shiny) for my forum friends

Oh that is lovely! Where, why, how much etc? I do have a very beautiful, similar RTR that was kindly given to me. Very nice Frank.

Where was merely a local antiques fair, I dare say it had been brought, or indeed, sent home, by a British Constable.
Why would simply be that I suppose they have not survived intact, in significant numbers, the local artisans in Jerusalem, Haifa and in particular, Bethlehem, made such brooches to order during both revolts, normally, upon just presenting your cap badge in order to copy.

Sadly, a whole four pounds was the awful price.

Frank feels most aggrieved!

Frank should not feel aggrieved. Frank should be delighted. 4 for such a lovely thing I'd say was a bargain. And thank you for the information too.

Its very pretty Frank, look after it.
