Two British badges to share.... OTC

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Because busy times in the college and home, I am not much around here these days. Every now and then I am able to hop here just for a quick browse.

Now, to contribute even a little, I think I share two badges that I picked up a week ago. I like my collectable items with some small "twist" or something that is not so common on collector's field (I don't mean rarity). Just some things with a different angle perhaps.

Here are two Officer Training Corps cap badges. I haven't seen much OTC stuff here so lets share the stuff what you have guys!

(if any of you have Dublin Trinity College OTC badge, then I would like to talk seriously :whistle:).

All the best,


1. Mount St.Mary's College. Worn by Spinkhill Derbyshire OTC.

2. St.Lawrence OTC from Ramsgate, Kent

School Cadet Corps and OTC's are very collectable fields - and not always easy to obtain. Keep looking for them

and then you could mount and sell them as a collection ?

Hope your studies are coming along well - time is always a problem, however, it is good when you can keep in touch. Mervyn

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
