Default Anodised Mobile Defence Corps - collars

Gents, I have a single MDC anodised alluminium collar.

Does anybody else out there have these? I'm guessing they may be reasonably scarce as I dont think I've ever seen another.

Additionally if anyone does have a spare to make the pair, please do PM me.

Regards all

Bess

Thanks Tim.
Got the anodised cap badges, 3 sizes of anodised buttons, cloth shoulder title and brass collars, but the anodised collars are proving very elusive . . .

I think I've got a bimetal and an AA cap badge, perhaps a button or two, and this flag centrepiece (about 27" x 20".

Hi Bess,
As I'm sure your aware this is a very scarce collar and the first one I have seen photographic evidence of!

The only knowledge I have of this collar is that Walter Lambert wrote on his list of A/A badges, I believe in Crown Imperial that he did indeed have one himself.

So, There may be a few out there somewhere! but where?
Regards
Colin

Think you're all right just checked mine, I've got everything except anodised collars.
I might as well stop looking for them after what you've all said.
Regards
Sean
