WW2 Royal Australian Air Force ( RAAF ) bronzed cap badge - Made in Canada by Scully for the Empire Air Training Scheme

A strong favourite in terms of design, this badge has a lovely patina to it and on the reverse of the bottom two laurel leaves has the name of the manufacturer, W Scully Ltd of Montreal. So this is a Canadian made Australian badge for RAAF personnel in Canada during WW2 as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan also known as the Empire Air Training Scheme Empire Flying Programme.

WW1 ORIGINAL AUSTRALIAN IMPERIAL FORCE MEDAL SLIP Letter - 29377 SGT H WATSON 2 Divisional Artillery Column AIF

29377 Sgt H. Watson 2-DAC AIF Enlisted in Feb 1916, with pre war militia service. Went to France in 1916, and had field service until the end of war. Noted in his papers that he allowed 2 committed prisoners to escape in late 1918! Also noted he served heavy guns, including Howitzers. Great actions, including Somme offensive and Hindenburg line. Discharged in UK, July1919.

He was entitled to the BWM and VM. The above details were taken from the research that accompanies his medals which I do not own and which also confirmed his unit. His medals last appeared for sale in Australia. Given he was discharged in the UK, and this letter from Australia House in London confirms that, then it is fair to assume that this item came from an estate sale and regrettably the items were separated then.

Since listing this item I have found a reference to him as follows:

Informant:
Sgt. H Watson 29377
4th Bgde. 10th Bty.
A.I.F. Le Havre 10.4.19.

Australian / Tasmanian - 3rd Derwent Regiment Two Part White Metal Shoulder Title - Gaunt

A two part title in white metal with two original loops to the reverse of each. The curved title is stamped JR Gaunt & Son Ltd, Birm. Birmingham presumably dates this to post 1970, but I understand this was a much earlier unit than this and it does not feel like a post 1970 piece but of WW1 vintage. Any information / confirmation welcome.
