    Nice collection.
    Don't worry about spelling. I went to college for 8 years and still can't spell worth a damn. My wife typed all my papers.

    Steve,

    You know I'm not keen on dealers and I suppose its a fine line some times.

    So if you send me some SAE, at risk of becoming a dealer I will send you what I find at cost price plus a beer or we can swap?

    I could fill you a shoebox in a couple of months but I would assume you are only interested in quality interesting prints.

    Anonoums bloke stood in groups wearing pork pies and drillich are everywhere and not that interesting.

    Steve,

    This is the best I can do without my camera (full of sand from holiday).

    I will try again when it is back from repair.

    Jock, I see it now ! good photograph.....the soldat in the the 2nd picture, first grouping, is wearing what looks to me, an even rarer badge on his right upper arm, a pre-WW1 'Kaisers markmanship prize' badge, instituted in 1895 by Kaiser Wilhelm II and awarded to the best company in every Army Corps for the combat marksmanship course. The badge was allowed to be worn on the right sleeve for one year unless earned again. At that time the strength of an Infantry company was 250 men, four companies per battalion, three battalions per regiment, three regiments per division, three or more divisions per corps. That roughly means that out of about 27,000 men only 250 had the honor of wearing this coveted badge in each corps. Gilded, stamped brass with a metal backing plate, blue wool oval backing cloth, a scarce badge ! I include a photo (courtesy of Stewarts military antiques) of the said badge (1908 award), I also show the version for Artillery marksmanship (1907 award). it is amazing the details one can find on these old photographs.
    Prost! Steve.
