    They appear to be British regiments that fought in the war. As for their original intent, I don't know.

    I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard sjcjdj! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forums: Select Your Area.... and selecting location information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country).

    Interesting ... obviously they are reproductions of British Army Regiment WW-era cap badges..

    At first glance I thought these were a set of "First Day" foil stamp covers but they are missing their postage denominations.

    Then I thought it looks like a commemorative set sold by a company like The Franklin or Danbury Mint (or their British equivalent).

    Now I see in your first photo one of the "badges" is turned over and there appears to be the remnants of glue or paper stuck to it. Is that correct and do the others all appear to have been affixed to a paper board at one time ?

    Some of these regiments had been decommissioned after WW1 which dates them to that era. The East Lancashire Regiment saw service at Gallipoli... I've never seen these particular items before but I would guess they are something like trading cards. They are definitely cool. I think if they were mine I would want to trim them from the old paper and have them all mounted and framed for display.

    At the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers, a fusilier infantry regiment of the British Army, consisted of seven battalions. A further three were raised during the war. Prior to the war, the regiment was one of a number that been selected to transition from an infantry role to a support role, its the one pictured below. This link will give you the history of the Northumberland Fusiliers; https://www.forces-war-records.co.uk...land-fusiliers

    "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." General Stonewall Jackson

    Possibly tobacco or cigarette trading cards. Like baseball cards for adults.
    These are 1939:

    Looking at the photos, I see Canadian and other Commonwealth or Territorial regiments represented... They all seem to be regiments that saw action in WW1. I would imagine these were a sort of recruiting tool from that time, but I can't find any like them online.

    My thought is to contact either the Imperial War Museum, or the National Army Museum in London and send photos to them, I would think that if these existed anywhere else one of those two collections is likely to have them or know of them.

    Good luck and I hope you'll update us if you find any info elsewhere
