    I finally got one! This fella is from out of Holland,and I picked it up for an amazingly great price!  You see the extra few pics I've added of the back...Scully/Montreal marked.   The few extras are of Lt. Alden Irivngs officers hat badge,but it is actually custom made from metal wire weave,plus a few pics I wanted to throw in. Watch out..now that I can add pics I'll probably drive you all insane. Sorry about the wonky photos.If anyone can flip those pics right side up,please feel free. Cheers!

    No,the Tam actually belonged "Original" NNSH Lt. Percey Angus Thurrott. The tam came to me as a grouping several years ago with his officers tunic and "Sam Brown". The tam had an "other ranks" NNSH hat badge but I wanted to put this on for display in my office.

    I have the other original badge in Lt. Thurrotts tunic marked as the original one to the tam to ensure the history of it.One of these days I'll put all together take a pic and show some of my NNSH collection. I hope others will do same.

    Cheers!

    Would it be possible to get images of the back and a good front image (straight on) of the badge?

    Does anyone know if you can flip the photos after they are placed on the site? They are proper when I load them,but flip on their side when uploaded. :P Cheers!

    This is the tam and many photos of "Original" NNSH and D-Day Veteran CSM James McLure. Tam and photos were offered to me a few weeks ago,as the seller knew I already had some pieces from the owner. The great thing about this is I finally have photos of the man who's grouping I now own! I'ma happy man!
