Indeed, one of the most prolific makers of military uniforms and effects for a very long time. I think that the button in question was likely made by another firm with Hobson's name added, as I...

I had made this query as well. Although some changes must be made, I wonder if some may be dispensed with due to the cost.

This elephant badge was also worn by Connaught Rangers ORs alone, but it is a mystery as to why it is painted black. Neither the Seaforths or Connaughts wore it in this manner to my knowledge. The...

I am sure the changes will take time, with certain organizations, military and civil, to have some precedence.

Sounds like a tacit statement that expenses are recognized and changes not necessary?

Is this official, or another possible version from the media? If it is official, I like it. A bit different from others. The KC is back.

I shall dissent. Five or so years ago I polished this badge to make RSM Brittain squint his eyes in admiration.

I am thinking for mounted officers shabraques. The smaller stars appear to be the rank stars for the shabraque in certain orders of dress; whilst the larger one for another order of dress.

They look like metal versions of the IG NCO mess dress badges, which are silver embroidered I think, but perhaps these are for the white dress as previously mentioned.

I can't see the shame part if it. Very nice indeed. Could it not be that it was done by the wearer, perhaps for walking out whilst still in service?

16th QL arm badge?

Did the 16th Lancers ever adopt an NCO arm badge prior to becoming the 16th/5th? I cannot seem to find any reference to one.

I think the photos distort the peak somewhat and it is a small size cap, which accentuates the size of the peak. A good cap however.
The badge looks to be an OR WM, not silver. How is it attached?...

I find that these genuine 18H slider cap badges are quite scarce. Virtually every one I seem to see is either bad or has lugs, which I just learned (thanks Luke) are collars.
