Legacy Badges: 2019 Australian Badge Guide by Mark Taylor
This illustrated - fully updated - Legacy Badges - 2019 Australian Badge Guide is unique and the original, ground breaking guide that has been documenting the history of Australia’s fundraising badges, buttons and pins since 2012. Australian Badge Guides is designed not only for “completists” – trying to get their hands on as many badges as they can – but also the person just interested in Australia’s war history, including the efforts to raise funds on the home front. Updated annually - Australian Badge Guides never go out of date unlike books - This 2019 Legacy edition is some 92 pages in length, with 252 references and includes some 581 full colour images of buttons, plus information about 11 badge makers of Legacy badges, buttons and pins.
The layout of this Australian Badge Guide includes a full-colour image of each known badge, and relevant information for the collector with respect to technical details as well as known historical references to the particular badge and/or fundraising event.
The Australian Badge Guide has been written by a passionate badge collector with extensive military, literary and research experience who has also worked hard since 2012 in developing a badge collecting community on Facebook – this is because Australian Badge Guides is dedicated to honouring the wartime patriotic fundraising work of homefront organisations.
The Australian Badge Guide is an excellent reference on this topic and makes an ideal gift for any person with a keen interest in military and social history as well as the avid badge collector.
