Nice find Phil,
Interesting badges indeed I do have a few fire brigade badges but nowhere near as many as the hallam collection these three factory badges came from.

Take care, don't buy any of the "flaming" grenade cap badges from that collection. Most, if not all, are total "duds". A generic FB grenade backing with a police collar badge fitted to the ball. The late Ray Bennett was the originator of them. I unwittingly supplied him with the collar badges and was amazed at the use he put them to! Some poor individual on eBay has bought many of them at top of the range prices.

In addition, many of the badges shown are not in fact FB badges. An example, the "Mersey Docks" badge was worn by their uniformed dock gatemen. They certainly did not maintain a FB. Yet another badge which achieved a high price and totally miss described.

Dave.

Dave
Thanks for tip off!
Iím generally not that type of buyer or collector so usually quite safe these days,
The last of the cap badges were sold last week on eBay from the 2014 collection I took the three factory badges and thatís all.

Kind regards Chay
