Paul,

I am not sure that it has been varnished, the reddish hue may be a trick of the light. I have given the badge a soak in warm soapy water and a light going over with a soft nail brush to...

Many thanks for the photograph. It doesn't seem to have the voiding that my one does but it is difficult to tell from a photograph.

I have just scraped away a small patch of the black gunk around the central oval, which appears to have been soldered in place. It may be possible to unsolder it and turn it the right way up before...

The Queen's Own Royal Yeomanry (Staffordshire)

It appears to have been cast from an original helmet plate and somebody has put the Stafford knot on upside down. I had...

I imagine that carting that heavy wooden table around might be a problem.

I also think that he is A.S.C., his belt would tend to confirm a Corps rather than a line regiment. The 1903 pattern leather belt was still largely worn throughout the Great War by the A.S.C. whilst...

Many thanks for posting, this is a completely new variant for me, but obviously not to other collectors, I have discovered that Matti also has one in his East Surrey album.

Tony,

thanks for the link to the photo of the reverse of the badge. If possible, I would still like to see a photograph of the front of the badge.

Thank you,

What is unusual about this badge, apart from the hairpin slider, is that the lettering has serifs. Not one of my other East Surrey Regiment badges has serifs.
