Another Brit.
« on: August 10, 2017, 12:47:24 AM »
Hello.
I am 55 and have been collecting on and off for around 25 years. I recognise quite a few names here from other forums. In my time I have collected British cap badges and other insignia. I then decided I should specialise in all Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire related items. Including The Bedfordshire Regt, The Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regt, The Hertfordshire Regt, The Hertfordshire Yeomanry and the Bedfordshire Yeomanry. Some time ago I got the US bug and started to collect WW2 era USAAF and USN wings and other related US insignia. Then at some point my collecting interest drifted back towards British items and I have recently been collecting to the six Regiments of cavalry raised during WW2, or war raised cavalry [WRC].
