Boer War British Badges
« on: November 11, 2008, 01:06:10 PM »
I recently appropriated a number of Anglo-Boer war badges and shoulder titles, including one reflecting a sphinx with a scroll under it inscribed "The Manchester Regt" approximately 7cm long and 5cm high. Are there any recommended sites that allow you to scroll and identify Victorian badges/helmet plates from this era and prior?

our badge section can be found here

Chris Hi

Ha,ha...appropriated...it's a long story, but no reflection on the user name though !! Thanks for the reply. Yep, that's the same one. Not as shiny as the one in your pic, but spot on !! I'll check out those badge links...cheers.
