A few badges I dug out

[Linked Image]

Some more..

[Linked Image]

First and second world war badges and medals

[Linked Image]

Couple of cap badges and another badge item on the far left not sure what that is???

[Linked Image]

Couple of dogtags
and some sort of wrist tag.

[Linked Image]

Admitedly not war related but earned by m great uncle who worked for birkenhead transport corporation before the second world war. One medal for 5 years clean driving and another for 10 years clean driving,

[Linked Image]

Dogtags of family members.

The following are photographs taken by my great uncle who served in the 8th army in the north african campaign as a despatch rider. He must have liked photography as the folowing photograps is only a quarter of the collection and paints a portrait of life in north Africa.
