Hi there,

Well I am busy re carding my collection at the moment so here goes with a few random Forces St Helens, the full set I believe worn in the reign of EiiR.

The first Pattern South Wales Police worn at inception until the next pattern could be produced which is shown below. The top of the crown is I am told missing for a reason and I have quite a few of these over various forces. It is not accidental but deliberately removed by Masonic members to show their affiliation to other Masons.

The second pattern I do have the collar badges but cannot lay my hands on them....
