This all dated 30th April 1952 under change C 4946. A/A version was CB (early NSN) No. 3299 and WM No. 2875.

These KC badges are also referenced under under the following LoC changes:

C 5161 - Surrey Yeomanry, small, INTRODUCTION (dated in 31st Oct 1952 - again, in the KC era)

C 8798 - 298 Field Regt., R.A. Surrey Yeomanry, NEW PATTERN of the St. Edwards Crown piece dated 31st Oct 1958 making the KC badges obsolete. The change went on to say that the larger St. Edwards badge was CB 8066 and the smaller CB 8067)

I think they do relate to the types of hat worn. The waters are muddied by the prolific restriking of q/c yeomanry badges in the early 1970s.

I think if everyone checked their Surrey Yeomanry badges a few more may pop up.

Very possible Chris.

Alan,I presume that most Yeomanry regts would have held a number of sets of No1 dress for ceremonial use. So they would have had caps to go with them.

Chris, thanks for the information on dimensions

Dave, I have no idea where Mr Hankin is, from memory he sold army badges and I think police items, I did buy a few bits from him.
