So excuse my ignorance, am I right in thinking then that these Badges are completely unauthourised for wear according to Army regulations but tolerated at Unit Level or by individual Commanders?

Hello Fritz!

Great collection!!!! Which one is the Mackensen one at bottom right, please? German, bulgarian or turkish badge?

Turkish. A fluke find cheaper than most German or Bulgarian. I traded it off for something better. I'm shooting pics of the updated Kappenabzeichen, since I now have K.B. 10. Inf. Div. at last.

Lucky guy! The turkish one was the most expensive badge in my collection. For several weeks I only had bread and water...

For me it left me eating as usual, but I flipped it in a trade for something else that would have had me on peanut butter sandwiches for a month. 

Here is what I have currently. The three at the bottom are post-WWI Verein (one for kb 10.IR, which is the primary regiment I collect). I recently bought the 22 Schuetzen. Div because of the Bavarian button design, and see they were in the same Korps, but I was uncertain past that if any Bavarians would have been wearing it.

Very nice, indeed! What´s the one bottom left. "Flieger"?

I try to collect only those, which could have been worn by german troops. Sometimes I have photos, sometimes it´s juts a guess...

Found this image for sale, and with Chip we deduced the badges as shown:

    • 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.
