  1. It might be the Volunteer Combatants Medal (Belgium).
  2. Tony, a lot of the British and Allied clothing was manufactured in the U.S. to British design. On arrival they would be fitted with the buttons of the units to whom they were allocated. In this case to a Belgian unit. Pete.
  3. Going by the description "Olive Drab" and the manufacturer being "L. L. Rosenthal and Co. Inc." I would lean towards it being U.S. made. Pete.
  4. It appears to be a typical theatre-made sand-cast badge probably made in Egypt. Pete.

    8th Armored Brigade set

    The Staffordshire Yeomanry (Queen's Own Royal Regiment) wore the QVC badges long after 1902. King's Crown badges were made and worn but it is known that QVC badges continued to be made and worn through WW2 and beyond. As they saw it they were, after all, a"Queen's" regiment, not a "King's".
  6. The Queen's Regiment 1966-1992.

    Military Vehicles

    The vehicle on the right, approaching the camera, is a Bedford "A" type lorry, the "A" type was introduced in 1953 as the replacement for the famous "O" type. It is a normal control lorry with a bull-nose bonnet, the chrome Bedford badge is clearly seen. The vehicle on the left, going away from the camera, looks to be an ex-military WW2 type that appears to have been converted to a recovery vehicle. Going by the rear of the cab and it's rounded shape , plus the high ground clearance, my guess would be that it is a U.S. built Chevrolet "G" type 1.5 ton 4x4. Pete.
