Default Monmouth

Hi Alan,
I noticed you have amended the list as you previously stated this as a 3rd Mon badge.
This badge as been previously covered on the forum , the badge was worn by the 2nd Mon in 1954 brass and A/A from 1965 . The Monmouth school were granted permission to wear the badge from 1968. So they would have only worn the A/A version unless they had a private purchased and bought a brass one.
The school also had blue and yellow Beret badge introduced in the 80's.
The school changed to Green and Yellow with the change to the Royal Welsh.

I am not sure that the 1920's photos show the school badge or that possibly the Norfolks looks to be a better match.
I have been in touch with the Old Pastonians and the school magazine records that the school cadet corps adopted the school badge and buttons in 1931 following on from the 1930 instruction. Prior to that they believe that the Norfolk badge was worn.

This account https://www.northwalshamarchive.co.u...-risebrow.aspx suggests that by the late 1940s as a CCF the school was back wearing the Royal Norfolk Britannia cap badge..
