Help Required with Identification

Recommended Posts

A few of these might be military but not sure where to place them.

A couple cloth flashes. Could be Artillery..

Then a few badges. Query relates to the advertising badges and not the two sweetheart badges.

Any help would be appreciated.

Got some information on the helmet flashes. Apparently they belong to the South African WW2 National Reserve Volunteers. 

The one advertising pin is for Meltonian shoe polish from the 1930s. I have no idea what the 'ISPCS' stands for though.  

The Albion Leyland Scammell badge seems to be quite rare, a trucker's button hole badge of some sort. 

Still can't find anything on the other two badges.

The green shield with the letters OH and SR, the Prince of Wales' feathers and the lion-and-tusk evidently comes from Southern Rhodesia.  Looks rather like a club or society badge.

Hi Arthur

I think you are correct about the Southern Rhodesia connection. Do you think it could be an old high school that used to be active during that time?

The 'OH' could be something Highschool...

Could be a high school, or perhaps a past pupils association, e.g. Old H---------s.  Could also be a sports club.  Lots of bowling clubs, for instance, wear lapel badges of this kind.
