Our  three featured images are from Part One of a Single Owner Collection of Military Cap badges. The Vendors Uncle was a collector over a few years, he did National Service and went on to be a Fire Man on Steam Engines. He then progressed to being an Engine Driver, he was a driver of the ATP on trial, which was later scrapped. He was mainly on the Carlisle to London route, and while on break before the return journey he would source military badges as he was very keen on WWI

The Property of the late Alan Bilgora Lot 1 to lot 150

Alan Bilgora (1929 - 2021) was a well-know record collector and authority on the tenor voice. He was a fine amateur tenor himself who performed regularly over many years in local operatic societies, the Dalston Synagogue Choir and the London Jewish Male Choir, with whom he sang for almost 40 years. Recordings of him show a very fine, well-produced voice with an excellent range to an impressive top C. He began collecting records in the late 1940s. Alan’s approach to collecting might be called an “encyclopædic” one. He was interested in amassing examples of as many tenors as he could, which resulted in a collection which contained small numbers of recordings of a vast number of singers. There were a small group of singers whom he collected more extensively, but the great majority are present in just a handful of examples. This sale provides an opportunity to explore rare and obscure names, many of whom display a quality well worth the attention of collectors. The remainder of the collection will be in the next Collectors sale
