Thank you for sharing John, nice collection and especially nice to see the BMA Police insignia.

I have posted them elsewhere, but for the sake of completeness here are the cap badge and Warrant Card of a BSAP Officer in the Tripolitania Police.

All the best

Graham

More wonderful items. Particularly like the Libyan Arab Force badges and the Senussi title. Well done on everything and thanks for posting.

Hi John,

Some more incredibly lovely badges you have there. I can see a few I would love to find. Really well done and very much appreciate you sharing these.

I'm afraid my showing is pretty limited but here you go - my Iraq Levies examples.

Cheerio,

Roy

Lovely collection, just a few minor comments:

The Trucial Oman Levies group is more representative of the TO Scouts, the crossed kunjar badge was TOS only the other are all both TOS and TOL. The tiny dagger collars were worn points out.

And on Roy's Iraq Levies the single daggers are not collars but shoulder titles worn points down and to the rear.

I too am interested in the Aden cadets badge.

Eddie

Default Aden cadets

not really knowing what this badge was and after having a couple of suggestions I picked on the one for Aden cadets, thank you all for your remarks on my badges, Eddy I will take note of your advice on the TOC .

The Tripolitania badge is one I have to look for. I am now bypassing India and going to Malaya and Borneo, if anyone has a spare shoulder title for the Border Scouts please let me know, John.

Default Aden Badge

Thanks for the photo of the brass Aden badge. It may be Aden School Cadet Corps, I really don't know. Have included a photo of Aden Primary cloth patch for those who are interested in Aden memorabilia.
