Hello Dudley,
These are great, I collected them as a small boy, all found in South Africa too, most in Natal and yet even today I still marvel at their quality, I just wish that they could all talk, I well remember as a child getting my hands on a Victorian made Argyll's, just superb and not like the dross produced just two decades later!
Major Hawkins, the officer commanding the Harrismith Volunteer Light Horse, had a daughter who collected, though, unlike me, she just used eggs as a currency to build up her collection!
Kind regards Frank

Whats the matter, don't you like them, it just seemed better than collecting those plastic Starwars figures that most of my friends had (some still have! :ohmy: ) when I was seven years old.

You should stop doing favours for your friends and acquaintances and use the time saved to get your badge collection into good order!
