Default <>FIRMIN<>

I am also on the lookout for any Corps, Arms & Services badges with the <>FIRMIN<> mark.
I have the following with this mark:- RE, IC, AAC, REME, RAPTC, RADC & RHA.
Again any spare.......

Jerry.

Hello Jerry,

Just for the avoidance of doubt, and to be sure there's not a mark with the <> <>, you are looking just for the latest Firmin mark, as in:-

FIRMIN

If this is so, I have a KOYYLI you can have.

cheers,

Andy

Hi Andy,

The diamonds are included in the mark, there are examples in Chris' anodised collection database.

Regards,

Phil
