Default Whats the one badge / medal that you have always wanted but never have got?

Is there a badge or medal that you have always wanted and can never get?

Share it here!

If another forum member has it (and will never ever part with it) please post a pic so we can all be envious.

Hi Dan,

Welcome to the forum.

Good question and one I'm sure will get lots of replies.

The cloth 'patch' that I have yet to find is the Great War 'DR' over 'Wheel'. This rare Motorcycle Despatch Rider patch has eluded me thus far.

What's Yours?

Cheerio & happy collecting,
Roy

Only 2 Chris,if my mind is still all there I recall seeing 2 for sale in the last 10 years.

I have one item that I would love.to have . A 1821 belt to the Rifle Brigade,known as "Fame" or "The Angel". There is supposedly also the same design with an "Eagle" on top and also a Victorian crown. I've never seen any sort of image or evidence to support either of these existing . I have a theory regarding the "Eagle"
