Serendipity Sunday - Military Badges and More




While seeking out material for last week's Remembrance Day Honour Roll I came across this very handy book. 


 
 

"Badges and Their Meaning : a companion to 'Rank at a glance' : Army & Navy, the R.N.A.S., R.N.D., R.N.R., R.N.V.R., the Royal Marines, Forces of the Overseas Dominions, British Red Cross Society, miscellaneous badges, etc., etc., with descriptive notes (British and Commonwealth) 1916" 

 
Of course after reading it is the "companion to Rank at a Glance" I had to look for that one too.  At Internet Archive it was uploaded as separate images each page, but I did find a website that has all the pages at a glance (pun).
 
 


 
 

Following are also a few links with more names of people pertaining to the military that are not fitting in a previous category.
