A nice collection. Well done on achieving the full set so to speak. I still have managed only 16 of them and still looking. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the interest in the Hampshire badge.

I have been advised that the South Wales Borderers and East Lancashire examples are suspect so stay tuned on that, cheers Dean.
