Picked up today


Recommended Posts

Went round another of her Auntie's places today to put up some shelves. Did the shelving, was bought some fish, chips, mushy peas and a massive pickled onion for lunch and was given a couple of pictures. Don't know too much about them but will dig into her memory banks later on.

Was then talking about militaria (as you do) and was told that a music shop round the corner used to have some old army stuff for sale. So, off I went and found said shop that sold guitars etc but looking further in found a whole pile of fantastic gear in display cabinets up for sale. I asked if he had any Somerset Light Infantry badges (to go with the guys in this picture) and he threw a whole pile of them on the counter.

And I love this little ribbon with the tiny cross - it's not from a pin, it has prongs bent over on the reverse (you can see one poking out on the left). All very worn I know but just great.

Any ideas on the first picture - Regt. etc ? I've just found another photo (civilian) and a name for the handsome bloke with the impressive tash in the second picture and will post more on him as I find it
