The Reverend Geoffrey Garner collection of Military Badges, Military Items and Travel Ojects.

The Rev Garner collected military badges from the age of 6, when his recently demobbed father gave him his Royal Engineers badge and ID tag at the end of WWII. After an apprenticeship at Alfred Herbert Ltd in Coventry he saw service himself, also in the Royal Engineers, for most of the 1960s.

In 1971 he was ordained as a Church of England priest. He worked in several parishes in Coventry and London until his retirement in 2005 from the post of Rector of St Marys, Bow. He retired to France where he very sadly died earlier this year. His fathers badge sparked a lifetimes obsession with collecting, principally military badges but also from school Officer Training Corps, NAAFI, Fire Service, WRVS, Scouts, Girl Guides and other notable organisations.

The collection comprises over 1,200 items from Great Britain, France, Russia, Germany and all across the world mainly dating from the 20th century. The entire collection is comprehensively catalogued by the Rev Garner and will be sold in seventeen lots of about 70 badges, sympathetically grouped. Copies of the Reverend Garners handwritten catalogue are available.
