It was designed by Edward Seago, the landscape artist and had been suggested for use by Daphne du Maurier, the wife of Major-General F. A. M. 'Boy' Browning, Commander of 1st Airborne Division. The badge was worn by all Airborne troops, in conjunction with the "Airborne strip", a separate strip with "Airborne" in pale blue on a maroon ground, worn below the Pegasus badge. There was no differentiation between 1st and 6th Airborne Divisions. 1st Airborne Division first went into action in North Africa in 1942. 1st Airborne Brigade landed in support of 1st Army landings in North West Africa. The Division then took part in the invasions of Sicily and Italy. The Division's most famous action was at Arnhem as part of Operation Market Garden, the attempt to seize a series of bridges to breach the line of the Rhine in September 1944. The Division's final deployment was as part of the occupation forces in Norway where HQ became HQ Norway Command. 6th Airborne's first action was on D Day when they landed East of the Orne to seize the river and canal crossings and protect the left flank of the invasion. They were withdrawn to the UK in August. Their next deployment was in the ground role during the Ardennes battles over the winter of 1944 - 45 ("Battle of the Bulge"). Their next airborne action was the Rhine crossing in March 1945. With 17 US Airborne Division they formed XVIII US Airborne Corps under command of Maj. Gen. Matthew Ridgeway. Their role in this operation ("Varsity") was to seize the town of Haminkeln and the crossings of the River Ijssel around Haminkeln and Ringenberg, north of Wesel. They then advanced into Germany with the rest of 21st Army Group. Their post war deployment was to Palestine, leaving in February 1948

3rd Royal Veteran Battalion A very rare brass cross belt plate, with 1 hook and 2 studs to reverse. Royal Veteran Battalions were British Army units of the early nineteenth century that were made up of men no longer fit for front-line service. They had been previously termed "invalid battalions" but this was deemed derogatory and changed. Between 1802 and 1820, 13 Royal Garrison Battalions, renamed Royal Veteran Battalions in 1804, were raised, taking into service army pensioners and invalids. Generally, these battalions worked in depots and stores doing administration and support work, which enabled the more able-bodied soldiers to do the fighting. These veteran battalions were disbanded and re-formed up until the 1820s. The 3rd Royal Veteran Battalion was raised on Jersey and served there before being disbanded in 1814 at Chelsea. In 1815, 2 companies of both the 6th and 9th Royal Veteran Battalions were used to form a new 3rd battalion at Edinburgh, where it was disbanded a year later

457th (Wessex) HAD Regt. RA (Hampshire Carabiniers Yeomanry) post WWII Very rare sealed pattern anodised aluminium collar badges. Some debate about this item ever being used as regiment redesignated in early 1967. In 1947, with the revival of the Territorial Army, the Hampshire Yeomanry was reformed as 295th (Hampshire Carabineers) Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment, RA (TA). It formed part of 100 Army Group Royal Artillery (TA) until this formation was disbanded on 9 September 1948. In 1963 the Regiment amalgamated with the 457 (Wessex) Heavy Air Defence Regiment RA (TA). The two units were renamed the 457th (Wessex) Heavy Air Defence Regiment, RA (Hampshire Carabiniers Yeomanry), this gave the Regiment the longest title in the army, and took on a new role converting from traditional Anti-Aircraft Guns to using the Thunderbird Anti-Aircraft Missile. The Regiment had the distinction of firing the last 3 missiles in the UK before Thunderbird was decommissioned. On 31 March 1967 the Regiment was disbanded on the demise of the Territorial Army and its replacement the TAVR. The regiment was reformed in 1992 when the Hampshire Yeomanry returned as the 227 (Hampshire Yeomanry) Amphibious Engineer Squadron, Royal Engineers. Again this was a very short lived incarnation as, after the Strategic Defence Review in 1999, the unit was re-roled as artillery with the formation of 457 (Hampshire Yeomanry) Battery, 106th (Yeomanry) Regiment Royal Artillery. The battery was based at Millbrook, Southampton and equipped with high velocity missiles (HVM)

Beja Badge Extremely rare unofficial badge of the 172nd Field Regt. RA and the 5th Batt. Hants. Regt. to commemorate the 1943 Battle of Beja. 172nd Field Regt. RA were affiliated to the 128th Infantry Brigade consisting of 3 battalions of the Hants. Regt. The action took place north of the town of Beja at a place called Hunts Gap in North Africa.10th Panzers equipped mainly with Tiger tanks were held for 12 hours non-stop gaining very valuable time for the allied communications of the 1st Army. In the early action the Germans used 8 Messerschmitts who raked the British positions. By the end tanks, guns and small arms fire were down to a range of 10 to 20 yards! Nine of 130 gunners survived to reach regimental lines and 200 out of the battalion of 5th Hants. reached safety. Balloted awards for the VC were suggested by Lt. Col. Newnham of the 5th Hants. and Brig. M.A.James of the 128th Infantry Brigade. One of the official reasons for this not being done were too many prisoners! A German Africa Corps commander speaking after the war admitted that the failure at Hunts Gap (Beja) marked the end of hope of victory in North Africa. CO 172nd Field Regt. RA had the badges made by Arab craftsmen in Tunis to commemorate the battle. Exact figures are not known but less than 200 were made. Some were purchased by men of the 5th Hants. who had fought just as gallantly as the gunners. The badge is a white metal shield with a red felt centre with a white metal Tiger tank pierced by a crusader's sword (sign of 1st Army). Small plate inscribed Beja in corner. Badge measures 2 by 2.75 inches and has a pin back. Was worn with pride unofficially by both regiments on the right breast pocket or right arm below 46th Division sign to mark this incredibly brave action.

Directorate of Operations Borneo 1964-66 Scarce 3rd pattern printed formation sign, of a Borneo white bellied sea eagle flying forward. Some paper and glue residue to reverse. Major General Walter Walker (DOBOPS) instigated operations code name \"CLARET\". Operation Claret was a long-running series of secretive cross-border raids conducted by British Commonwealth forces in Borneo from June 1964 to early 1966. These raids were undertaken by special forces—including the British Special Air Service, Australian Special Air Service Regiment, and New Zealand Special Air Service—as well as regular infantry. During the early phases of the conflict British Commonwealth and Malaysian troops had attempted only to control the border and to protect population centres from Indonesian attacks. However, by 1965 they had decided to take more aggressive action, crossing the border to obtain information and in \"hot pursuit\" of withdrawing Indonesian infiltrators. First approved in May 1965, later they were expanded to include cross-border ambushing in July. Claret was largely successful in gaining the initiative for the British Commonwealth forces before being suspended late in the war, inflicting significant casualties on the Indonesians and keeping them on the defensive on their side of the border. The operations were only publicly disclosed by Britain in 1974, whilst the Australian government did not officially acknowledge its involvement until 1996

Reformed under the leadership of Subhas Chandra Bose in 1943 and fought with Japan in the Burma campaign in Imphal and Kohima. The legacy of the INA is controversial.
