An Army Barmy 7 yr old grandson!!! Needs a cap badge!

#1
My Army barmy 7 yr old grandson was bought for his birthday a red, green, and black beret!! He wears his full kit at every opportunity! Unfortunately he lost MY fathers capbadge circa 1947 GIIR at a school fancy dress - I can cope with that :-( but he cannot cope without having a capbadge - if any of you have a spare capbdge knocking around please pm me - I will give you my address to send it to! Having a badge for EACH of his berets would be brill!

Cummon mates! I've been all over the market and found nothing!

You can have my old Engineers badge, my spare REME and a soon to be stolen Smurf lid and cap badge if you like. :) (If I can find them.) Anything else you're after while I'm on the prowl?

He has a minituarised set of fighting order lol! Full 7 yr old combat and Afgan uniform - loads of posters etc on his bedroom wall - he has helped me during my booksigning gigs wearing a Combat Stress T-Shirt and collecting money for that very worthy cause! (£80 recently). His father is currently in Afgan! Whatever you no longer wish to hold on too he would treasure - I would be happy to reimburse any postage!

Need and want are very different things. It's important to instil this lesson at a young age. He WANTS a capbadge, yet NEEDS oxygen to survive. May I suggest you place a plastic bag over his head in order to clarify this very important distinction for him?

A green beret you say? Well, to match the green beret I could offer an AGC Capbadge.




On second thoughts, I wouldn't do that to the poor kid. He'd be traumatised for life.
