The following Photos are from the Cyril Kent Sim collection reference book and are not found in the book 'Badges of Office'.
These photos will show cap badges, collar dogs, shoulder titles, belt buckles and cloth/braided badges and a few helmet plates.
I remember being told that there were two reference books, basically they were just scrap books for use when a visitor came to see Mr Sim. Both Gentlemen would have a book each while chatting about badges and then would refer to the actual badge on display. The collection was so vast that this form of system had to be in place just to find a certain badge.
