both different size and shape, the one with the white ground is only 2.25" across and 2" high, the other is 2.25" across and just over 1.75" high, does anyone know what regiment there from?

Hi Ray,

Try: http://www.regiments.org/regiments/uk/lists/ba1918.htm

There's a lot of links, one for each regiment, but the detail page for each shows the badges. With a broadband connection you may be able to get through the lists fairly quickly.

Hi Ray - sorry I can't help you with your regimental badges, which are lovely, but I was hoping you would post, and caught you here.  (Strike while the iron is hot and all that.... :P )

Some time ago, you identified a Heron Glass mushroom for me.  I lost my original picture which was labelled at the time but have posted it again on the Glass Board "Two Toadstools", along with an Avondale Glass one which is labelled.  Would you mind looking at the picture once more.  I cannot remember if it was the large white one or the smaller blue irridescent one that was Heron :roll: .
Many thanks. :lol:

Regards - Anne E.B. :wink:

Be aware that these are often not Ysart weights - there seem to be quite a lot of them about... almost too many to be true. At least with badges and of course the badges and buttons are still widely and cheaply available. I suspect a lot are brand new and just exploiting the fact that Paul Ysart definitely made a few.

I think there is some info on Kevin's site. None on mine, I bought one a few years ago but decided it was brand new once it arrived!

i'm 99% certain these are right Frank, the one with the multi coloured cane chips has gold and green aventurine all over the place and they fluoresce Dusty Light Green on Short Wave like my other ysart weight,   i've not got a long wave tester but Kev has :wink:
