One of the most popular fields of collecting in the subject area of Militaria is that of badges and insignia worn by private soldiers and officers of the various regiments of armed forces around the world. At C&T Auctioneers and Valuers Ltd we pride ourselves in always offering collectors a good selection of both metal badges and cloth insignia.
We mainly offer badges and insignia worn by the British armed forces from the Napoleonic / Georgian period up to the modern day insignia worn by the British armed forces in the modern campaigns such as Iraq and Afghanistan.
The most popular items at auction include regimental helmet plates, metal and cloth shoulder titles, regimental cap badges and cloth formation / divisional signs worn on WW1 and WW2 uniforms. As with all areas of Militaria items to the elite fighting forces / special forces and WW2 Airborne forces always prove to be popular with bidders at auction.
The collecting of regimental badges and insignia is popular the world over, with us selling to clients situated in mainland Europe, USA, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
We have been very fortunate to offer a number of distinguished collections in this field, including the Colin Churchill Collection of Regimental Collar Badges & Cloth Insignia, The Barrie Morris collection of Regimental Cloth Insignia, The Baz Bruntlett Collection of Regimental Badges and also the Brian L Davis collection of Cloth Insignia.
We are now finding that because the previous demographic of regimental badge collectors were older than that of more mainstream militaria, we are now being called in to offer advice to families on the disposal of large collections, something we are more than happy to do for our clients loved ones. We have a proven track record in selling large collections of regimental badges and have a large client base for this subject.
