Sorry to say, but it does not look good to me. The slider is not of the type I would expect to see and notch appears artificially applied. I could be wrong, but I am sure others will confirm if this...

Regarding the heavily polished badges, it is also likely that some continued to be worn by individuals even though contrary to regulation. Not an uncommon practice throughout the Army in both wars I...

I too think it a type of cap badge. While it may be possible that it is some sort of "sweetheart", it does not have the usual attributes of such. I also doubt it is a collar badge as well, although...

The photo appears to be pre ww1, and taken in the UK, not overseas. Solar Topees were worn domestically by some outdoors clubs and the like. The style minus the typical Pagri is not what one would...

A nice small badge, perhaps for the Mess Dress collar or FS cap? No sign of previous lugs that I can see.

It is British and an old timer at that. It was worn on the lower left sleeve on OR's service dress (usually). Those type of lugs are a just a lesser seen variant, not an economy measure as far as I...

The very small marks by the H and D appear to be still there where the scroll was once attached. Why it was removed is anyone's guess.

It is indeed an officer's service dress cap badge, even though it has a rather light brass appearance. There is a small black patent leather roundel beneath the rose, unique to this regiment.

For what it is worth, I think the badge in question is OK. I find many of these cast officer's badges have a somewhat crude appearance to their reverse. I also like the pinned on feature of the...

Well, I guess this pretty much sums up the issue. Caps were indeed the harp and not the eagle during ww1.

Thanks for that. I suspected it was likely the eagle for officers in ww1, but I wonder if the harp started to be worn around that time as well.
I must say that I find this regiment to be quite...

The facings of the Green Howards were green, the West Yorks Buff and the others white. It is difficult to distinguish Buff from white in photos however.
