Doing family research and found my Grandfathers WW1 records, he served KRRC . 2nd Bn & 16th Service Bn ( Church Lads Brigade). My question and looking around i am confused, did they wear KRRC badge or and I have seen, a similar badge with CLB in the center. Help please.:confused:

I should just go and buy a good old KRRC cap badge if I were you, assuming it's cap badges you want, are his papers still extant.

The 16th Bn wore the normal KRRC badge.

The CLB version was worn by the cadets post 1917 but not by the battalion itself,

Many thanks, his records apart from medal granted were destroyed.

Thanks for replies. Not after just badge, but info on him. His records were destroyed apart from medals due which shows he served in 2nd Battalion KRRC and 16th Service Battalion (Church Lads Brigade). I'm trying to find out where he went first. Many thanks.
