Welch cap badges

Article about: Arrived today and picked up for 99p from ebay, Welsh regiment OR's white metal collar converted to a sweetheart brooch, though sadly it has since lost its pin.

    You are building up a nice collection of these.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, still need to get a few, including WWI Welsh regiment OSD, OR's bimetal and economy issues as well as a WWI RWF OR's economy and OSD and the WWII plastic issues. I have a Monmouthshire regiment in the post, but of course that means finding all the other variations, but it gives me something to focus on, though the WWII plastic issue is seriously rare and the only example I have heard of sold for 1200 a number of years back, so unless I get very lucky, I will not be adding that one to my collection.

    Probably not Tom, though they might be as these change over time, but it is more likely to be for one of the many Prince of Wales units, such as the South Lancs or the 10th Hussars as many units used the POW feathers as part of their insignia and working out which is which is quite difficult unless you know your collar dogs. But they might be for one of the other Welsh volunteer units, as some of them used the POW feathers as well. Still looking for a good book on dogs, as they are often quite different to the cap badges or at least are a simplified version dropping some of the features that make them identifiable to the uninitiated.

    Any you don't want are always of interest to me Tom and will be appreciated, though you might be better selling your unwanted pick ups IMHO.

    They vary in price from 5 and upwards, depending on the unit, the date, the materials used etc.

    A few more for the RWF, a WWI economy all brass cap badge, and two shoulder titles, one half of a two part example, which was a gift from forum member Andy and a one piece with the grenade.

    Many thanks to Andy for the title.
