Hertfordshire regiment right facing and Hartfordshire Regiment collar badge
 
Churchill makes reference to the above, but provides no evidence. Can anyone provide said evidence of the right facing badge or the traditional Hatfordshire spelling version to prove his statement?

The museum at Hertford had this Volunteer right facing collar, but if you look closely its slightly strange with the antlers unfinished ?, and not matched to the other as the front leg is not in the air.

Hi Stenoyab,

Thanks for taking the time to reply to my question :)

I am very familiar with the Hertford museum collection as I lived for several years and still work in the town.

The badge that my query relates to is KK 1805 or Churchill 2007 which Churchill claims was worn in the collar by some Officers in 1911 and is said to be found with the hart facing to the right and, this is crucial to my research, "is also known with the spelling "Hartfordshire", the traditional spelling" (sic).

I am curious as to if he found any evidence and if he did then it is very possible that others (on this forum perhaps?) can assist in proving that these two badges do in fact exist.

Below is the pattern of badge that I refer to for clarity.

So, I think that I have exhausted all the avenues that are available to myself now and I guess that the subject matter is a little bit specialised being a Territorial Regiment with limited interest. Sadly, I only know of two Hertfordshire Regiment collectors on the forum, orasot and gb64 with any knowledge of the regiment and my outside contacts have drawn a blank :( So given the lack of evidence on all fronts, I believe and I am ready to be corrected, that Churchill was using rumours, hearsay and word of mouth, much like Gaylor when he published his works.

I will let this one rest now until I can find more time to probe that little bit deeper than I already have.....
