Enfield percussion crossed rifles

Here is the image from my old files, as I wrote earlier, I saw a similar badge that were definitely Sniders. I don't have the size listed but presume that it must be a collar badge.

Sorry, no such town in Australia, and if there was (somewhere between Alice Springs and the Indian Ocean?) I doubt if they ever needed a war correspondent.

Thanks for the collar badge images. I have never seen one of these and did not know they existed.

Queen Victoria's 200th Birthday!
