• A wholly new, completely revised guide for the collector

This edition of Badges of the British Army presents a wholly new, completely revised guide for the collector. All the photographs are new, and the coverage extended to encompass the badges that had appeared since the book was first published. Through six editions and many reprintings, this book has proved itself immensely popular with collectors, as well as providing the novice with an invaluable introduction to the subject. Easy to slip into the coat pocket, it is the perfect companion to perusing market stalls in search of collectable items, providing immediate visual identification of each badge. The author, Frederick Wilkinson, supplies excellent advice to the collector, showing how to date badges, warning of the fakes, copies and re-strikes that abounded and how to recognise them, but also demonstrating how enjoyable and rewarding a pastime badge collecting could be. His introductory text presents a brief history of British Army badges, from the shako plates of Wellington's time - now valuable items - to the later, much easier to find, Staybrites.
