Kerr's Corner

Kerr's Corner is a regular feature in East Antrim and Newtownabbey editions of The Wizard. David Kerr would like to hear your memories of life in your own area. Maybe you'll trigger some thoughts for a future column.

Kerr's Collector's Corner

BADGE COLLECTORS will be delighted to know that two new enamel badges have just hit the market. The first is a brand new seven colour Ulster-Scots cultural badge. It is absolutely fantastic. Its centrepiece is a highly stylised Scottish Thistle. An outer black band reads ‘Put Ulster-Scots First’ around the top and ‘Pit Ulster-Scots Tae The Fore’ around the bottom.
A new Rangers badge features the club crest surmounted by two 1606 Union Flags. This flag combines the English St. George’s flag and Scottish St. Andrew’s flag. (The cross of St. Patrick wasn’t added until 1801).

I also hear that the Sacrifice at the Somme 1916 badge – featured in the June issue of Kerr's Corner – is also available again. These badges cost only £2.50 (including p&p) each. To get your badge(s), simply send a cheque/Postal Order (made payable to Glenwood Publications) to: Glenwood Publications, First Floor, 316 Shankill Road, Belfast, BT13 3AB. Happy badge collecting!
