Is the Gloster TF one voided with 2 fretted holes under the blank plinth or is it unpierced?

Any chance of a close up on the Berkshire Yeomanry badge? Is it on lugs or slider? Thanks, Paul.

I assume this is the badge you asked about? 2 bent lugs.
Found another badge which I think you were referring to.

Hi Jackhr,
Alan means the badge that looks like this. Your one has a blank "EGYPT" plinth.
Cheers, Tinto

Both solid and pierced variants exist but it is nice to see one with provenance. The blank scroll badge was introduced in 1908 and made until 1916 for wear by the 4th, 5th and 6th Territorial Force Battalions. Each battalion raised a duplicate Bn (2nd/4th, 2nd/5th and 2nd 6th) in 1914 and a 3rd each as depot/training bns in 1915.

In 1916 the TF battalions were told to adopt the Regular badges with the battlehonour. I suspect this had as much to do with efficiency in supply than rewarding the TF with a battlehonour they had been previously denied.

Hello Jackhr. Thank you for the extra pictures. The two blade fittings on the Berks Yeo badge are the type of fittings for an officers badge. The creature depicted is actually a chalk horse carved on a hill not far from me. Due to boundary changes it is now in Oxfordshire. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/white-horse-hill
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uffington_White_Horse
The China Dragon badge is the Royal Berkshire Regiment who were infantry. Good to see a manufacturers variation that can be linked to The Great War period as the badge was in use for over 50 years. Regards, Paul.

Thank you both for the information on the badges I appreciate the reply's as I like to know the history about these items on the belt. Is there a reference book that would explain the different badges from WW1 from Britain? that I could purchase .

The Berkshire Yeomanry is a brass ORs badge which was supplied by the regt from 1908 which is why it has blades rather than the normal lugs or slider. There is an identical one in Bosleys' auction at the moment.

Thats interesting Alan. Are there other ORs badges known to have been made with blades? I am interested in Berkshire Yeomanry badges- do you have any further information regards their badges, are Bosleys identifying it as ORs due to known information or the quality or the badge? I think immediately before the Great War they may have been using the ORs Lambourne badge? Any information on BY badges of interest- strange if they went from 3 lug Imperial Yeomanry badge to blades. Regards, Paul.
