Are you one of those militaria types who have a huge collection of cap badges ?

Only to those units I've served with or been attached to…

I have plans for my grand shadowbox in the works with all my unit crests, patches, saved worn ranks and other mementos from my time in the Army. But I don't collect others.

I have a few – mostly from units that relatives have been in – but I would not say I am a collector

Yes. I have a substantial collection of British OR's insignia for the period 1908-1918. This includes cap and collar badges, shoulder titles, and trade & proficiency badges. Roughly 1,000 items at last count and still so far to go…

I do have a few odds and ends for WWII as well, mostly formation signs.

Wow enfant, any pics?

I have a few British cap badges from WWI, and moderns from Highland Regimental museums I've visited.

Yes, but only those from regimental museums I've visited.

Yes, but they are the ones attached to my collection of WWI British and Commonwealth headgear.

I collect military uniforms, the hats often have badges on.

No, I've never gotten around to photographing any of my collection. I keep meaning to, for insurance purposes if nothing else.
