Durban Mounted Rifles title?
 
Hi All,

does anyone perhaps have a Durban Mounted Rifles title, if there was one? There is no mention in Owens

TIA

Iain,

I stand to be corrected, but as the DMR was amalgamated with the NMR in 1888, and pre general use of shoulder titles, I suspect there was never one.

Thanks, there isn't one in Owen's; someone has a title which I say is Die Middellandse Regt but he claims it's Durban MR

If it is a D over MR, than definitely 'Die Middellandse Regt'

Ask if you can post a picture to get confirmation...

It is the D over MR and for me it is Die Middellandse Regt

Hi Frank,

he reckons it's a cut out badge so it must be old

Hi Dudley,

yes it's like that but he says it's bronze and cut out

So certainly and very obviously nothing whatsoever to do with any Natal Volunteer Corps.

Some titles that I have in my collection that may be of interest to this topic.

Two on right I think fit the period (similar to other titles I have from around the zulu war period).

The one next to the HP is w/m similar to those worn by UVR / BMR Boer War period.

Were there not District Mounted Rifles titles in the ABW?

Frank Kelley 02-12-19 09:48 AM

There was indeed.

Thanks Shahl,

seems to be Durban or District Mounted Rifles but not as the Middellandse Regt.

Shahi,
Is your DMR HP intact, or is there something missing from the
Left of the monogram? The QVC seems off centre.
