Default Camel Corps badges

I collected Camel Corps and related badges during the 1980s and 1990s. I sold the collection about 10 years ago, after retiring. I thought that, perhaps, some collectors might enjoy seeing what I amassed, so I posted an image of the badges on my website, a link to which follows. I was suspicious of one or two of the pieces shown, but felt comfortable with the vast majority of them, as I dealt with trusted sources.

Cool Scinde Camel Corps

The Scinde Camel Corps is I think a badge made by Fox of Southsea c1900, still a scarce item and a true antique.

What an amazing collection.
Thank you for sharing.
Were all the badges unofficial, locally made?
Which one would have been worn by the British please?

Really nice to see! The ACC title can easily be confused with the Army Catering Corps. I got an oxy one years ago from the estate of an Australian veteran with good provenance, because and Camel Corps badges were the only ones in the lot.
Were there different sized Catering Corps titles? I know nothing about them.

The only titles that I can see are "ICC" Imperial Camel Corps not "ACC".

A superb collection, thank you for sharing.

I would like to know what numbered Imperial Camel Corps titles exist, I have seen 5, 8, 9, and 15, are there others?

Thank you, Keith

Fantastic collection. Does anyone have any photos showing these badges actually being worn, particularly the ICC shoulder title?
