    Many thanks for the reply Mike. I'd very much like to see if anyone else has any of the older and more vintage British prison badges and insignia. I will try to start things off with a few items I have.

    I can only post small photos apparently, so I will have to compress some and come back.

    Hi HMPbadges,

       Glad to see you've joined the forum. Here are the other crowns crown/s that would have fitted into the centre of the plate. This type of badge is probably generic and worn in other British Colonial prisons.

    Hi Garry,this site I have found very good for resizing pictures for sharing on forums or email etc.



    If you upload a pic from your PC (or Mac) and then choose the "set file size" you can type in say 200 as in kilobytes and it will reduce the data file size but the resolution (pic quality) is not compromised.

    And also here is the only Prisons related badge I have (is from my home country of Australia)
