2019 has probably been my best year collecting wise.

Two of my friends both decided to sell their collections and I was fortunate to have the pick of both collections.

I was also able to find few scarce badges that I have been looking for and my bargain of the year was a LRDG Officer's cap.

Seasons greetings to all on the forum and best wishes for 2020

Keith

Some great finds and Jack your AFC and CFS items must be pretty thin on the ground. In all my years collecting British badges in Australia I have come across quite a bit of Australian militaria of course but never such items to buy. Mate at works grandfather AFC gallantry set name Bugden closest and friends grandfather ALH DCM and trio but just for gazing at.

All the best, Dean.

Thanks , but Bugden was in the 31Bn and was KIA but was awarded the VC for his gallant action, do you have the name for the DCM? Are the medals still with the family's for both chaps?

Cheers

Yes both with family’s Jack and yes was a VC and went on what they said at the time as being AFC. I think the DCM was an MM now that I put my mind to it Israel. Helped family frame his portrait and had cap and maps etc. cheers Dean

Whilst Ive had a quiet year generally I have however picked up a couple of gems.
1 a type 1 Rising Sun collar badge, the one with 7 small triangles that make up the rays of the sun and the word "Australia"
2 whilst not a badge but a medal, a QSA to the Scottish Horse, although not to an Aussie, it has no suspension or bars, but still a nice item. Research to follow. This was a Christmas present from a mate.

Regards

Phil.

These two 27th Lancers officers embroidered badges were a most fortunate purchase in 2019.

The red backed example (note the excess of material) is a beret adorned badge and the khaki backed version worn on the field service cap.

Also, an Indian made 25th Dragoons ORs with the ‘EDEN 43’ mark stamped on the slider, plus a left facing 26th Hussars “combo” collar cum officers coloured slip-on shoulder title device - the combination variant being a first pattern badge with the second pattern scroll instead of the tablet.

And lastly, the medal group, documents, photographs, etc, to the CO of the 26th Hussars, Lt. Col. J. B. Norton.

Have a very Happy New Year and all the best for finding your desired badges in 2020.

Marcus
