Chinese Shanghai River Police badge

Recommended Posts

shanghaigirl , I guess I lost track of this forum . I will check through my badges  and list them. I dont know how long he served but he was resident in Shanghai until he was interned by the Japanese and released in 1945. If you go to my Donnelly blog 

http://iadonnelly.blogspot.com/ early on in the archive are some photos of Donnelly as a volunteer fireman. Also there you will see a photo of shelves of my China collection which shows the International Settlement flag.


If you are interested in getting in touch directly my e mail is apbfam@sbcglobal.net

Hi, I have a pair of antique silver and enamel Cufflinks which bear the insignia and motto of the Shanghai international Settlement but also seem to have a star surround which looks like they may be related to one of the authorities. Has anyone come across anything like these before? Any information would be very welcome! Thank you!

    • 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.
