The red tunic was withdrawn in 1914 so is pre WW1.

The second one looks WW1 but could be inter war.

Indeed so the bb was a post 1908 affection of a relatively small unit that did not have a second or third battalion in WW1.

I doubt VB badges were reused or painted: more likely they wore the VB...

My theory is that the use of the BB badge was only 1908-15 and even then only on No 1 dress caps. I suspect the cyclists mostly (if not always) wore the standard badge in khaki


This is why...

Staffs Yeo were in brass both with QVC and then with K/C. It is attributed to a school OTC in w/m but that is not a certainty.

Do remember that WH badges were provided by the unit and not the Army so they was no WW1 equivalent of an NSN.

My typo. They were in existence 1915-19. I corrected the post.

The ADCC Gazette has them listed as well in 1939.

I still can't find any mention of the CC after WW1 to put an end date to that.

Keith

They varied according to the size of the school. Some of the photos I have seen have barely 20 cadets in them. If you go to my OTC album the OTC strengths are listed for 1911.

The WW1 era badge would tie in exactly with the s/t 1916-19. Cadets often wore obsolete badges so they may well have worn it later than the TF Battalion.
The Cadet Corps may well have been...

I have nor seen a Tiffin school cadet corps cap badge. Lots of photos of cadet units pre-WW1 show caps being worn without badges in them so you can have a cadet corps without a cap badge...
