Devon SC. Cap Badge, Chrome & Enamel. KC. and Special Constable Lapel Badge, Brass & Enamel.

Hi Kevin, I think the DCSC cap badge is for Derbyshire not Devon. Ian

Hello Ian,

Many thanks for the reply. It is nice to hear from you. I trust that you and yours are keeping well? You have raised a point that has confused me for some time Ian. I have seen references to the Cap Badge listed above as belonging to Devon. I have also seen it referred to as Derbyshire. I have checked the PMCC reference section again today at it appears that the badges listed under the two forces are identical. Or is there some difference that I am missing? Can you advise? Did the two forces share a common badge? I have long puzzled over this and finally came down, rightly or wrongly, on the Devon side of the debate. You experience and advice would be most warmly welcomed.

Kind regards,

Kevin

re: post #250.

What is the significance of the three heraldic devices on the badge? The top one would seem to be from City of Exeter (the Exeter force used a castle as a collar dog) but that was a separate force until the formation of the very short-lived Devon & Exeter force in the late sixties. The other two emblems I can't place but neither is City of Plymouth.

Hello, A very good question! I have tried to research this particular badge without success. The attached images are those of the Ja Ja Heraldic Card Series depicting Devonshire which replicates exactly that on the Lapel Badgel and the Coat of Arms of the Duke of Devonshire which might

assist in placing the bottom right hand shield. Other than that I haven't a clue. I have looked at the arms for key towns etc.. but nothing comes near to the bottom left hand shield.

Here's a cigarette card that arrived today that might be of some interest. The write up on the back of the card in the photo was a scan made by my less than adequate scanner. I hope it shows up well enough.

Regards

Brian
