Hey all,

I recently  came across these two badges in a lot. Police memorabilia is not my area, but could the Flying Squad be real and would it be possible to put a price on them? They are just taking up space meant for medals at the moment : ) 

Thx - Hans  

Ps. Sorry for the picture quality.

Yes the Flying Squad is a real department whose remit is armed robberies. That badge however has nothing to do with the Police and would appear to be joke civilian key ring. The specials badge I will leave for others to comment on.

The special constable badge is the genuine item. Issued in their thousands during the Great War by Kent County Constabulary. Worth about £5-£10.

Thank you Dave and Craig for the fast and very useful info. The flying squad goes in the box of fakes.
