    Hi Martin, cracking jacket with battalion badges applied in the official manner. Love it!

    Also, just adding a still capture from the above video link for posterity in case the link changes or disappears over time. Quite why some Norfolk units did this we'll probably never know!

    In case anyone new to Home Guard collecting is viewing this thread now or in the future it's worth noting this book:-

    The Insignia and Uniforms of the LDV and the Home Guard 1940-1944 - by Jon Mills & Terry Carney (2008) and still available on Amazon:-

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Insignia-Un...s=books&sr=1-1

    It's a very good indication of the numerous insignia variations and anomalies of the type discussed above!

    Best regards, Paul

    That's a nice still from a very interesting bit of film.

    I live 10 minutes from King's Lynn and from the rifle range at Shouldham Warren in the film. The butts are in the midst of the pine forest now so it looks very different to the open terrain in the film.

    Regards
