I have an Old Contemptibles Association lapel badge, with the number 7404B stamped on the reverse.

Is it possible to identify the recipient by this number, and if so...how?

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance on this one.

It sadly seems that the records of the Old Contemptibles were never kept centrally, but usually by local branch - and that no records of any kind have survived.

Thus no way of tracing your badge - at least, to my knowledge.

I have several of these badges including a Patrons badge in silver and my understanding is the same as Paul.

Some of the local OCA records are in local record offices e.g I think those for Andover and Basingstoke are at Winchester. They need gathering together perhaps.

:( Bah, Humbug!! Cheers Paul & Ian.

The silver Patron's badge is also lurking in the collection somewhere. It's a shame there wasn't a register kept in a central location.

I don't suppose Teddy Noyes would have any tips would she? If I remember rightly wasn't she the last President of the OCA?

Oh well, cheers for the info lads. :)
