Katanga badge

Recommended Posts

Those are nice badges but not that hard to get.

Some stock's where found in the '80 ties here in Antwerp and still for sale at most flea markets.

That may be, but I havent come across more than one or two since acquiring it. It also came along with several other badges which I have since determined are associated with Mike Hoare's 5 Commando operating in the Congo. I will post photos.

Can't wait to see them.

About the badge, here is a ebay page showing 3 sold over the years;

And if you check local (Belgian) sites, you will find some more.

Belgian Congo is my main interest in militaria.

Great part of my collection was found in international fairs and sales (with the help of forum colleagues!!)

I am reworking my war room for the moment (my badges are not exposed, yet) ;
