  • British soldier in WWII uniform

    Good afternoon,

    I'm trying to do some research on my great-grandfather's WWII service. Unfortunately, with only a name I am having some trouble. I was hoping someone on this form could help me identify his regiment based off of the collar dogs that he is wearing in this photograph.

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Welcome to the Forum

    They look like Prince of Wales' feathers but are not ones I recognise. Could be Pembroke yeomanry?

          The collar badge looks identical to the cap badge of the Pembroke Yeomanry shown in Regimental Badges (1951) by T.J. Edwards.

          Cheers,
          Dan.

                That's the badge I'm thinking - pity I got the regiment wrong.......
                What am I saying - it is the one I said.

                  The photo might be pre war with him wearing Service Dress with collar badges.
                  When was Battle Dress introduced and collar badges discontinued?

                      Thank you all very much for your reply, I think you're right, which might seem odd for a man from Belfast but it was the Great War!
