Hi Mervyn

I think Rod takes the cake with his collection.

Was Rod in charge of the Metal Crushing Machine for destruction of returned badges? :o

I have a few treasures- in particular a Commonwealth Police Lapel Badge.

I am very interested in the Australian Commonwealth Territories - in particular ACT, Norfolk, NT, CI, also Military Police badges.

Tasmania is also an area of interested.

Can someone please advise how to upload a picture? I have some badges I would like some input on please.

Can you upload a pic directly from your PC?

regards Dan

Dan - at the top of the Forum you will find a panel with a number of headings for help. Our Chairman has given

some good advice on one of these with regard to posting. Have a look - practise on the Forum section set-up for this.

Any problems please come back to me - I'm no expert, but we certainly have members who are.

Best wishes Mervyn

Excellent collection Sir !  And judging by the size of it I would consider you quite an expert on Australian police items. I spotted a very rare helmet plate on a website called oz badge, an early Queensland helmet plate with a Queen Victoria Crown (squared off version),it mentions there were authorised replicas made in 2009, have you ever seen or come across one ? Heres a pic of the original.....Cheers....Tom.
