Hi Mervyn

I think Rod takes the cake with his collection.

Was Rod in charge of the Metal Crushing Machine for destruction of returned badges? :o

I have a few treasures- in particular a Commonwealth Police Lapel Badge.

I am very interested in the Australian Commonwealth Territories - in particular ACT, Norfolk, NT, CI, also Military Police badges.

Tasmania is also an area of interested.

Can someone please advise how to upload a picture? I have some badges I would like some input on please.

Can you upload a pic directly from your PC?

regards Dan

Dan - at the top of the Forum you will find a panel with a number of headings for help. Our Chairman has given

some good advice on one of these with regard to posting. Have a look - practise on the Forum section set-up for this.

Any problems please come back to me - I'm no expert, but we certainly have members who are.

Best wishes Mervyn

Excellent collection Sir !  And judging by the size of it I would consider you quite an expert on Australian police items. I spotted a very rare helmet plate on a website called oz badge, an early Queensland helmet plate with a Queen Victoria Crown (squared off version),it mentions there were authorised replicas made in 2009, have you ever seen or come across one ? Heres a pic of the original.....Cheers....Tom.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
