This thread has made my check my Connaught Rangers badges and I have this one I would be interested to hear your opinions of. It has a larger crown and very different back.

26th Hussars backing

Hi Marcus,
I recently bought this badge off a dealer from his site, not ebay. You are correct, he had two, one a cast officer's gilt and a die struck with the backing. I bought the cast one and...

26th Hussars Badge

Hi Marcus,
Thanks for the photos and info. Interesting that your officer's backings are different from the one on this badge and yet my backing appears too small for a pagri backing?

26th Hussars Badge

Many thanks Tim for that useful information. As 26H was only in operation for two years does it make this officer's gilt badge with backing quite scarce then?

5th Dragoon Guards

Many thanks John for your informative reply. If the horse badge was the normal 5DG badge, it leads one to wonder when my badge was used - I presume it was not the FSC badge as the lug would be too...

5th Dragoon Guards

I recently acquired this silver officer's badge which surprisingly has a lug and tang. From Gaylor's book it appears this badge was issued at some time after the 1922 amalgamation and yet it is...

Another with no Jellalabad

This is a 1902 Jennens badge from my collection with no obvious signs of the Jellalabad having been removed and is normal cap size. Any thoughts on it?

Large 17th Lancers badge

Has anyone any ideas on this oversize 17th Lancers badge. It is 5.5X4.5cm (only slightly larger than normal) and looks to have 3 Victorian lugs?
