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 Gloucestershire Regiment cap badge, 1896 pattern
- British
This commemorates the service of the Gloucestershire Regiment in Egypt in 1801, unique in the annals of the British Army, inasmuch as they are the only regiment to wear the back badge commemorating the moment when the rear file of the regiment was ordered to turn around and fire at the French who were attempting to take them from behind.

militaria item Royal Engineers horseshoe sweetheart brooch, George VI
- British
The Royal Engineers were responsible for bridge/road building, mine fields, their laying and clearance, etc. These brooches would have been worn by women on their handbags and lapels to commemorate the service of their men in the field, a tradition which started in the Boer War.

militaria item Dublin High Court official's cap/collar badge
- British
This is a particularly fine die-struck gilt badge (4 x 4.5cm), possibly fire gilt (as opposed to electro-gilt), with the coat of arms of Dubin in the centre, backed by the sword and scales of justice and a civic mace, topped by the burgher's crown. A court official (eg the Tipstaff of the Court) would have worn this.

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.

militaria item VR lapel pin in pinchbeck
- British
This could be a commemorative piece for any of the late Victorian Jubilee celebrations. Alternatively, it is just possibly an ordinary patriotic piece with no particular date. Her long reign spanned from 1837-1901, but my guess is that this was definitely made towards the latter end of it.
