Your missing the best badge book ever written Mr Administrator!

British Military Badges a collectors catalogue by Keith Rawlings printed in 1977. Its a book I know a lot of dealers for quick reference in their shops.

Sadly the prices are out of date now, but regardless Keith put a lot of hard work into this book listing as many badges as he could for each unit.

Last time I wrote to keith I think he was sunning himself in Bournemouth Its a hard life being a badge expert!
Mr Kipling - Exceedingly good badge books.
