20th century

militaria item Royal Marines Warrant Officer's sleeve badges
- British
Probably worn on the number two blue tunic of the RM, the smaller badge (just 6.25 cm across) was worn at the cuff of the sleeve, while the larger one (just over 8 cm across) was normally worn just below the left shoulder. The date could be anywhere from 1953 through to the mid-60s to judge by the quality of the bullion work.

militaria item Royal Marine Light Infantry helmet plate, other ranks
- British
This badge was designed for the solar topee that the Royal Marines adopted in 1905 to replace the blue cloth helmet of the Victorian and early Edwardian era. The badge is still worn today on the Royal Marine Band headdress but with a Queen's crown and, I believe, in a staybrite format.

militaria item British Indian police pouch belt ornament
- British Empire
This is the badge which was worn on the pouch belt by the officers of the British Indian police. The police was divided into two components in India: the paramilitary police battalions who served on the frontiers (viz Burma and NWF) and the local police, who kept order in the cities and towns of India.

militaria item 4th Hussars undress pouch badge
- British
This is a bazaar casting of the badge of what could possibly be from a bandsman's pouch or perhaps an officer's undress pouch belt. The 4th Hussars were a prestigious British light cavalry regiment and no doubt this badge was cast in the bazaar to replace a British original which had been lost.

militaria item Customs badge
- British Empire
This little badge (7.5cm across) may be of Indian parentage, inasmuch as its provenance is Indian and it appears to be a one-peice bazaar casting in brass. I think it would have been worn on the top pocket of a tunic, as it appears to be too large to have been worn as a shoulder title.

militaria item Royal Engineers bronze FSD cap badge, George VI
- British
These were worn by Royal Engineer officers in combat dress, worn throughout WW2 and the Korean War. It is marked Gaunt London on the reverse and is a nice, crisp die-struck badge.

militaria item Baden-Powell photographic buttonhole
- British
This shows quite a nice head-and-shoulders portrait photo of Baden-Powell wearing the hat popularised later by the Boy Scout movement, which he founded. His original glory came from the defence of Mafeking. There were great celebrations throughout the Empire when Mafeking was relieved and this is an example of what this euphoria produced.

militaria item 17th Lancers veteran's buttonhole, unhallmarked silver
- British
The 17th Lancers gained eternal fame in the Charge of the Light Brigade, along with other Light Cavalry regiments, but their use of the skull and crossbones as an emblem goes back to the 18th century. According to King & Kipling's Head-Dress Badges of the British Army vol. 2, this exact design was a sealed pattern of 30th July 1927.
