I have several in leather hardback, but then I did write it ......... !

We could have done so much better if we started again today ............. sources were random, knowledge was sketchy, references hidden in archives, and the vast numbers of good photos "in wear" on this forum, on the defunct VWS and in the GWF could have made so much better a job.

It is not so much that there are errors [no book is without a few], it is the omissions that are grieving.

Nevertheless, enjoy the book, I hope it is the first edition: although the second [by Denis Edwards alone] adds some knowledge, the illustrations are inevitably less sharp because they are photos of pages of the first edition.

Still my best badge book ever.

Thanks for producing it. (Although it has cost me a fortune over the 37 years I have owned it.)

regards

Picked up my 1st edition in Chesterfield in 1984 during a tour of coal mines (along with a fake 6th Inniskilling Dragoons cap badge).

The leather-bound copies sound interesting.......
