    Default Help with cap badge

    I have a box of things from my Dad's US Army service in WW2. One appears to be a British Cap badge. My husband says they are crossed machine guns. Also, is the little RAF item a matchbox cover? I think I figured out from this forum that the Kreta is a cuff title. How about the little bayonet that says Liege? Souvenir for the Allied troops? I know he was in Liege. Thanks.

    Welcome to the site ML Egan!

    All I can help with is that the cap badge is for the Machine Gun Corps (WW1). As seen here:

    That was fast you two! Thanks. Although I wonder why he had a WW1 item. Picked it up somewhere over there, I suppose.

    I would guess that the knife with the Liege name was a souvenir given or made when he was there. Are there more pictures of the RAF case?

    Thanks - mine doesn't have Churchill on it - both sides just have the RAF. I suppose they were junk that was made to be sold to soldiers. Now I just have to find a box of matches that it fits!
