    Collecting and scanning pictures of insignia to CD disks and trading same with others; sometimes I give them away too! I am mainly interested in the BRITISH EMPIRE (1880-1945). I maintain a website called MILITARY BADGES BY BOOKER that is nonprofit, I sell nothing! I also have 6,000-PLUS pictures in photo albums on www.webshots.com under eneryhodge, hhbooker, hhbooker2, and Clovis_Lee_Booker (my cat!). I used to also draw insignia up to 400% larger than actual size and have hundreds or drawings unclaimed! I also collect books on insignia, medals, and uniforms, worldwide!

  1. Am not really as knowledgeable as I'd like to be on insignia of Vietnam. My mother served there as a male nurse in the U.S. Army, but I never got a chance to go there also. I had friends there who shipped me Vietnamese insignia from both sides, however I gave it all away to young collectors for free. After the war ended in World War Two, as a young person, service men and women gave me loads of insignia and uniforms. I recall several books on on the medals, insignia and uniforms of the South Vietnamese military, but cannot recall much on then North Vietnam? As I recall from photographs, there were two armies affiliated with North Vietnam, one being the Viet Cong who probably did not wear much insignia? The N.V.A. I believe the others was called, were pictured with insignia, seems like most were their officers? I wish I could answer your question! Maybe you can write to the Vietnamese Government's Military Attache, have gotten free books and insignia from military attaches as they get less mail than a consulate or an embassy it seems? Good luck!
  2. Phoenix Military had a three part series on the badges of the Indian Army that I illustrated for the now defunct magazine. Go to either http://www.archive.org or to http://www.scribd.com and look under Sarge Booker or Herbert Hillary Booker 2nd or under Indian Army Badges. You can use whatever I have done for free however you wish. Also please see my website http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942 and find it there and over 1,900 albums free for downloading at Booker's Free Web Library.

  3. "GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" See: http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email (Booker's Free Web Library), over one thousand albums of pictures of badges, coins, flags, insignia, medals, uniforms, etc., U.S. and foreign from 1809 to 1967, most of the U.S.Navy uniform regulations from 1841 to 1941, many U.S.Marine Corps uniform regs and U.S.P.H.S. as well! I scan my library of booklets, books, brochures, catalogues, manuals, etc., all are out-of-print and many cannot be found easily and are often quite expensive, but mine ar FREE! You can make CDs and give them away, use them for trade or sell them and keep all you get, I do not want anything in return as I have more old insignia, medals, uniforms, etc., than I can use and when I scan a book, I get rid of it as I no longer need it! Having it all on CD disks is the way to go! See my websites at: http://community.webshots.com/user/hhbooker2 and http://community.webshots.user/eneryhodge and go to http://www.archive.org/ ("WayBackMachine") and type in http://www.militarybadges.info/ and see the now defunct website that was oart of http://www.diggerhistory.info/ Every day, rain or shine, I am at my computer scanning more than eight hours a day and maintain non-profit websites hoping that collectors and researchers will save what I have put there so when I "buy the farm," you will have access to all this reference material.

  4. Download free militaria images from my albums at http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email (Booker's Free Web Library) Over 1,000 albums and everything is for you free!

  5. DAN: Please go to http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email (Booker's Free Web Library) and see the complete 1928 issue of the BB&B booklet/catalogue! Sarge Booker of Tujunga :Cat-Scratch:
  6. Greetings & Salutations! Obverse side of the WW1 Victory Medal with possible repro bars? Sarge of Tujunga :catjava:
  7. GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS! Someone asked me if these were reproduction bars for the Victory Medal and I said I did not really know? Did the ever have "FRANCE" on the reverse side of these bars? Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga (booker1942@yahoo.com) :Cat-Scratch:
  8. TIM: Yes, the other websites like FACEBOOK do things to make life difficult unless you join them, however I do not require anyone join or even sign up as friends unless they want to do so on their own. Everything I have is for others to use and enjoy without all those strings attached. I've got quite a lot of BB&B including an almost rare book on medals of military socities. eBay sellers sell information they got from me or from my website, however it does not matter to me if someone wants to sell CDs, they probably need the money what with inflation! Here I am pictured with my tomcat named Clovis Lee Booker II, he is not at all happy wearing the Christmas cap, if you were a cat, would you like for others to see you like this? http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email Sarge Booker of Tujunga
  9. ARCHER: I make the time and am at my computer either scanning my extensive library of insignia, medal, and uniform books or I am adding scans to http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email and right now there are 817 albums at the Booker's Free Web Library. If I do not do it, who will, Archer? Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga ( booker1942@yahoo.com ) :catjava:
  10. Dear Archer: Quite correct, but! Someone somewhere listed them that way in one place and in another used proper titles, what can I say? I've never been to Australia or England, but have been to Canada, did not see the members of the Saint John's Ambulance Brigade. Have had to scrounge for the pictures I did manage to acquire. Malaysia appears to use some sort of crown in place of the Maltese cross and scroll below for rank insignia along with pips? Hardest to find were the warrant officer rank insignia, did not locate the highest grade? I bought three books from the Saint John's Ambulance Brigade in Australia and see some sellers want a pound of flesh for them, but I show the scans free of charge! I'll try to correct errors unfortunately bound to happen and greatly appreciate your letting me know, Archer! Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga (booker1942@yahoo.com) :catjava:
  11. "GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS!" Have many of the booklets/catalogues of BB&B at http://picasaweb.google.com/booker1942?feat=email (Booker's Free Web Library) you can download for free and use however you wish! Respectfully yours, Sarge Booker of Tujunga (booker1942@yahoo.com) :catjava:
