Hi Will

Which jurisdiction/obedience of the Order of St. Lazarus do you belong to?

Forgive my asking, but you are not on the list of members of the South African Grand Bailiwick.

THE 6TH SOUTH AFRICAN ARMOURED DIVISION AND 24TH INDEPENDENT GUARDS BRIGADE GROUP

My grandfather was part of this famous division which fought under General Mark Clark during the Italian campaign. The Guards Brigade Group was under the command of the Division.

It must have taken ages and ages to get together that group of badges and flashes for the &th Div!!!!!

Hi Chris,

It took approximately 3 years in the days before the internet was there to assist.

I buy up helmet flashes etc when, and if, they come onto the market.
