RAC Band Badges

Mick,

Apologies, I should have said I was a member of the Royal Yeomanry Band. The Royal Yeomanry was made up of several Squadrons who wore their own badges except the title which was RYR and...

Hi,

They are horse brasses relating to the Royal Mews e.g. for use on Royal Coaches, etc. The Royal Dragoons certainly had the Royal Crest but all of their horse brasses had the regimental motto...

The style of eagle changed, first with lined wings & then post 1949 with feathered wings. Your all gilt Jennens badge appears to be the latter period. Also the eagle should be facing to your...
