SOUTH AFRICAN CONSTABULARY COLLECTION


Recommended Posts

Congratulations on a very comprehensive and attractive collection. I have got rid of most of my SAC material, but I have kept the five-clasp QSA that belonged to Superintendent W T S Mark, who was the SAC's Chief Armourer.

Regards

NIce - the Victorian crowned badge, is it shown complete or should it have a seperate devce such as the lion insignia in the centre?

Hello Leigh......

There is normally a coloured leather patch behind the voided badges which denotes the squadron that they belong to which would match the piping on the shoulder title.....

There is no Lion on the Pre-1902 badge it is blank, with the exception of the Medical slouch had badge which has a circular White enamel device with a Red Cross in center.....

HEADQUARTERS - Red

"A" DIVISION (Western Transvaal) - White

"B" DIVISION (Northern Transvaal) - Light Green

"C" DIVISION (Eastern Transvaal) - Light Blue

"D" DIVISION (Orange River Colony) - Deep Yellow

Interesting, seems an unusual design - Id've thought, coming across the badge without central device that it would be Indian, Sikh.
