Default Home Front Cloth Insignia

Back in 2009 I produced for the Military Heraldry Society a Special Edition of its Journal covering the badges of the numerous uniformed organisations which served on the Home Front - from the Civil Defence Services to the Land Army, the River Emergency Service to the Civilian Technical Corps, the Fire Services to the Scouts and Guides.

I have now decided to reproduce a copy under my Island Fortress series, the 16 pages of which explain the role of the organisations and illustrate some 135 related badges. In addition a centre spread features some 100 Home Front armbands, now much sought after.

To try and establish a sensible print run would any member interested in a copy please PM me. The 16 full colour pages - samples attached - cost £10 inc UK postage - overseas post to be advised per destination.

Comments/questions welcome.

Jon

My thanks to all who have posted or PM'd. Requests noted.

I should have the copies to hand by the end of next week when I will check overseas postage rates and advise total cost.

Jon.

Just received the copies which look good.

If you have already expressed interest please PM me with your address and I will supply details of my Paypal account. I can only post once a week so please bear with me and I will let you know when posted. I will advise overseas postage cost asap.

Any questions please shout.

Jon

Hi All,
Jon Mills has asked me to let you know that he is in hospital at the moment. He is not sure for how long but will post out the ordered books as soon as he is back home (hopefully early next week).

Hi again all,
Update from Jon Mills.
He is still in hospital and asks those who have paid for the Home Front Cloth Insignia book to please be a little more patient and he will send out the orders as soon as he returns home (hopefully towards the end of next week).
