A fascinating photo....I do have to say they look rather un-British with those Czapkas; dare I say Hun-ish :eek:

It appears the regiment was a bit understrength and needed to recruit some more Chads.
The chevrons in that photo in India appear exceptionally wide. Did they have special regimental pattern ones?

Sound advice. While some OSD cap badges actually did have loops or sliders, unless one is familiar with them specifically, blades are the general rule.
Those are indeed very dear prices for single...

Well, there you go. Never say never. Although a cap motto instead of Chad would certainly be an anomaly in normal circumstances, in war time virtually anything goes. This also answers one aspect of a...

So to clarify, pre-1914 regular cavalry would be bells down.... Or did this too depend on the regiment?

Very fine and scarce piece! I would be interested in seeing the reverse and how it is assembled. A rather strange looking design with that scaled globular backing; very antique styling.

As so often happened, the regiment or corps a soldier began his service with, in this case the Hampshires, changed during the war.
The MGC drew men from all regiments, becoming quite large by the...

That is indeed an nice photo. Ally Sloper's Cavalry as the mounted SAC were known as. Not surprised that he transferred to other Corps during the war for a long service soldier.

A brooch fitting does not necessarily mean that it was intended as a Pagri badge,
but that is certainly one possibility.

Whilst I cannot comment on the value, I think it certainly is on the rare side. I have been collecting old bullion for several years now, and I don't recollect ever seeing anything like this.

The top is a pre ww2 British officer service dress cap, and the bottom a ww2 era cap, both very interestingly repurposed with the addition of a different chin strap and insignia.

Yes, it does appear to be a collar after all, but I can find no photos of it in wear. It is the same very small size as the pill box cap badge worn in photos from the 1950s.

I believe that is actually a cap badge, as worn on the Kilmarnock (round cap) by Nepalese officers of the regiment. It is likely post war.
Collar badges were not worn.
