Cool Cambs without the "E"

I'm afraid I don't agree about the Cambridgeshire badge being faked, the ones that I have seen that I am not keen on have the "E" in the title, has this one without the "E" been faked to death.

One question, why is there a Monmouthshire Regt cap badge above the T/Y/MONTGOMERY title?

Did they wear this cap badge at one point in the unit's...

Cool Kimbolton School

I believe Kimbolton School also wore this badge, so maybe, just maybe this could be one of theirs, definitely not Home Guard or Hunts Cyclist.

Billy, I don't know where this "Royal" came from, the Suffolk Regt were never granted that title.

Question Rochester VTC

I know that many VTC badges have been reproduced, this Rochester VTC has had the loops replaced but it looks to me to be a nice deep strike and possibly an original.

Your thoughts would be...

When you consider these were the first of the reproduced badges for collectors as far as I am aware made by Fox at around 120+ years ago, it's not surprising that there is confusion as to what is...

Two of the guys are wearing picklehaubers, at first I thought they may be POW's, but I think they were trophys.

Cool 8th Army/British troops in Austria

These formation signs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, many being locally made, I think the cross was supposed to represent a crusaders cross.

Cool Herts Yeomanry

Thanks chaps for the comments, yes, I think it is a sweetheart brooch minus the enamel, blue or whatever colour was used.

Any comments on the orders of the day for 1914?
