Welcome to my Web Pages!
I am a collector of Police insignia here in England. I have been a collector for 16 years now. I first starting collecting after I walked into LARGO Police Department, in Florida and saw their impressive display of shoulder patches. At the time we did not have such things over here, but within a few years every Police Force in Britain had a patch. So by getting in at the start I was able to build up my large collection of United Kingdom Police Patches!
The patches that have red backgrounds are ones needed by me for my collection. Thanks to Christian Duckett of Frimley, Surrey for the loan of the few patches needed to complete these pages.
SOME OF MY COLLECTION OF HATS
The above 10 display cabinets, containing 167 items of headwear from around the world forms a small part of the total number of hats that I have. This display was formerly housed at the South East Area Traffic Unit, at Aitken Road, Catford, SE6.
Part of the display is made up of all the United Kingdom Home Office Police helmets.
