Default Regimental Crests and Letterheads

I've collected Gurkha crests and letterheads for a number of years - I think they are interesting pieces of Regimental emphera in their own right but also extremely useful in terms of dating insignia. Recently I bought two albums at auction - The first is a Gale & Poden British Army Album - which I think is the equivalent to today's football sticker albums - when school boys collected packets of crests ( 2 dozen in a packet costing 6 pence ) - and then mounted them in an album . The second Album is more interesting containing actual letterheads and crests cut from correspondence and neatly arranged by Regiment - there were also several hundred of loose crests mostly Indian and Colonial regiments ( there were only a few Gurkha ones and none that I didn't already have ) - If any forum member wants to see a photo of their particular Regiment then just let me know. Tim

They're attractive little items, I have two small albums with pasted in regimental and other crests..
I scanned the military ones a few years ago after you posted a thread about crests on the forum but never got around to adding to that thread.

Hi Tim,

A great lot! I have a couple of dozen on matching mounts which I've now framed.

Would you mind showing any other Royal Sussex (35th and 107th) please?

Kind Regards,

Pete

It's the same as the shield Mark - no 88 intertwined with the cypher.
