Hi Guys, does anyone have a ray-backed two-piece wound badge? I have one in brassed silver ,pin has a tiny ' V ' stamped on it. The only other ray-backed example I have seen is in Niemanns book and that is a screw-back. If any one has an example could they post a picture or two? Many thanks,Ferg1.

here's one that is often attributed to the berlin retailer friedrich sedlatzek, as they can be found with that firm's hallmark, and were available in both 800 silver and plated versions. this unmarked exa mple is magnetic with a copper wash, which was then silver plated. two vent holes

Very nice and distinctive reverse  on the badge.

On a complete separate note does anyone know of a good book on WW1 wound badges?

The only one I know of was written by William Hamelman in the '90's.  It's pretty basic and the photos aren't that great but, it does cover WWI, WWII and the 1957 versions.  I'm pretty sure it's out of print and used copies can be hard to find.

Beau, 

 

 I have seen the book on amazon(?), and the review was poor. I guess it is a small niche collectable area that has not been written. 

 

Thanks, 

Chuck

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
