    Polish Resettlement Corps barracks at Chisledon camp 1947.

    Today it would be in breach of European Human Rights legislation for 'asylum seekers' or 'refugees' to be housed in such accomodation!

    A complete digression from the thread of course, but it does make me ....

    Great pics Stefan, thanks for posting them Interesting to get a visual on the Chisledon camp, and the humble quonset huts it consisted of.

    OK, to steer this thread back on course, earlier today the hammer dropped on the 5CKM badge auction. I had placed an unsuccessful bid for a friend:

    Was that price way over the top do you think?

    By the way I found the pictures of the Chisledon Camp really interesting. I spent time in the area when I was in the Army.

    All the best

    Not at all. Actually quite a reasonable price for what is a scarce badge. I have seen at least two of these the past several years sell for well over what this one fetched. The market of late is depressed. Here’s one in weaker condition that sold several months back for 30GBP higher.
