Hi Charlie,

I'm an ex cavalry man. I served in the 2nd/14th Light Horse (Queensland Mounted Infantry) from 1988 to 1992 first as a as a Driver/Sig and later a crew commander. Had a few fun years driving M113A1s around before getting out and going to university.

Since leaving the army, I've had a big interest in military history especially about the Royal Australian Armoured Corps, the Australian Light Horse and the pre 1948 Australian Armoured Corps. I've been a big collector of RAAC badges and patches and then by extension got into collecting British Cavalry/HCAV and Yeomanry badges as I have an interest in all things cavalry. I guess it runs in my bloodline - I have relatives who were cossacks and mounted soldiers going back hundreds of years (in Russia).

So hence my interest in trying to obtain a Boys Squadron RAC flash. To me its a fascinating part of British cavalry and armoured history.

Mick
