    Well done...a terrific collection. Interest in Red Cross items has definitely increased and these would look good in most any collection...!
    cheers, Glenn

    That's an unusual collection field but an interesting one. Are these common? What sort of prices do they command?

    I can honestly say that I've never seen such a large number of the invalid feeders and all in one place! Excellent grouping! I especially like the Red Cross marked pieces! What is the story on the one with the red Maltese Cross?

    Thank you for the comments. The prices vary like everything really, i've been lucky enough to pick a few up for 1 each but some have cost 25. On the auction sites they tend to go for over 15. So not highly valuable items but i think they are a great bit of history.

    Hi William, i dont fully know the story of the one with the Maltese Cross. Ive only recently started collecting. However, one of them has VICTORIAN HOSPITALS ASSOCIATION written around the actual cross. Could also be from a different country.

    Victorian hospitals association is an Aussie association which is now part of the Australian hospitals association

    From what I can see they started in 1946, so no doubt used at repat hospitals, there's a large one at Heidleberg in Melbourne which has a long history going back to WW1, and still in service today.....they even looked after the crew of the German raider SKS Emden after it was sunk in WW1
