    Thanks in Advance......

    Mike, There is no kc badge for the 15th ALI. They wore a circular glen badge without a crown. And these are very scarce. There are collars for the XV ALI which can be found but again are not common. The 49th Hastings Regt had a kc cap badge, but again quite scarce.

    Good Morning Bill.....

    Yes I thought that they may have been rare but I like to mount a mans medals with the badges of the units in which he served.....

    Major Lynn served in both between the Boer War and WW1....... See: http://www.cdnmilitarycollectors.com/t3353-major-jiffy-bag-dance

    I have the RCR and CE badges.......
