  1. Give me a rattle over a vuvuzelas any day.
  2. Thats great. Nice to know its background. Only paid £25 for it and it will look nice in the background of my collection. thanks for letting me know.
  3. Just looking for your views on this rattle please. Could this possibly be a police rattle?
  4. Dave your a star. Thank you.
  5. Gents, is there anyone who could kindly post a picture of a Met Police cape please. I am looking for one to add to my collection but I'm not sure of the correct look. Did they just have a chain? Or did they have a lion head. We're the numbers worn on the collar etc. Thanks as always for any help on this. Dave
  6. Hoping someone can help me with this. I'm looking for a Metropolitan Police Cape with chain/numbers if possible. This will be used for display to go with the tunic and helmet you see in the picture below. I was lent one of these old capes when I did a very cold night duty a few years back at Balmoral, it was so cold I felt like I was dancing. Anyway, the cape was more affective than any of the kit we had at keeping out the cold. so if anyone has one they would like to sell please let me know. Thank you Sorry about the picture. For some reason I can't right it.
  7. Hi Alan, if you done the 'share this post' way it would look like the above. Or you could just 'cut and paste' the stories and then add in the pictures.
  8. Very much looking forward to that one Alan. It would of been fascinating to have had a conversation with the man who 100 years ago did the same roll as I do now. Dave
  9. I'd have to agree with Mike on this. I'm no expert but the ribbon certainly surgests it's a Kings police medal which if I'm not mistaken came into being in 1909 so fits with the date. The Coronation medal doesn't have the broad lines as the Kings medal.
  10. Thanks guys. I will leave this well alone then. I came across it in an antique store today.
  11. I’m looking at possibly buying this. Can anyone tell me anything about the artwork or possible I d on it. County force Met? Any info would be most welcome thank you

  14. Thank you chaps. Yes a cape would be nice. I will keep my eyes open.
