Hello,
Can anyone identify the hat badge of Major Algernon Carteret Thynne.

Looks like Royal North Devonshire Yeomanry (Hussars) K&K 1457 -A circlet inscribed Royal North Devon Hussars surmounted by an Imperial crown. In the centre the crest of Lord Rolle, In Bronze.

The MIC for Algernon Carteret Thynne DSO, records R W Devon Yeomanry & N Devon Hussars... spot on, Tim.

[Edit: KIA - 6 Nov 1917 / Household Cavalry and Cavalry of the Line (incl. Yeomanry and Imperial Camel Corps) Battalion: Royal North Devon Yeomanry]
