Default British Columbia Regiment (Duke of Connaught's Own Rifles) cap badge

Hi all,

This is the first cap badge I acquired a few months ago.
Can anyone help me to date it?
Thanks in advance,
Marco

Hello Marco 01fr, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts.
The badge is the 1939 ptn badge and is still in wear today. From your images it looks like an earlier pattern eg Second WW through the 50's. The badge appears to be plated?

Oh that's great news! Yes, it looks like it's plated. The front is much brighter than the rear.
Thanks Bill

Yes. There was an earlier badge without the South Africa battle honours underneath the coronet.
