All I want for Christmas.....?

As it all seems quiet around the collecting scene at present but I thought some of you must be writing your letters to Santa and wondered what items you would most like to find under the tree?

Could the Scottish Male Nurse badge be re commissioned to the exact standard at all?

This sold today (but not to me) at 440 plus commission,aprox 548. Some Nice RRC and ARRC went too well above estimate as well as a Princess Christian badge.
