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.

    • 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.
