Beautiful items! I think they are privately made civilian handywork by a skilled embroiderer, and not issue badges if any kind.

A very nice and scarcely seen photo. I would guess it to be late 1890s as the seated field grade officer (Lt. Col. ?) still has the earlier rounded corners to the collar, whereas the Lt. standing has...

Not only were there many differences in voids, but in overall size and the shape of the leaves surrounding the center. The A&SH have some the most variations of all badges.

Unfortunately I must say they are crude copies in my opinion. Cast badges similar to these were made in India and elsewhere, but the characteristics are different.

I think the rather thick impression the base of the blades give is due to the very small size of the badge.

Strange tiny badge which seems to have not been bronzed, or perhaps it lost the finish from wear and repair. I think it to be good as well.

I am not sure of this, but I think the 13th did not have an arm badge?
If Linaker shows LCpls with them, then they did at the period in question.
Thanks all,

Thanks for that. I cannot seem to find any photos of Hussar LCpls wearing them though. Is it possible that it varied according to the regimental custom?

I have not seen such small OSD MGC collars before, but they look genuine to me, as does the Lancs RGA ST.

Did LCpls wear the arm badge pre 14?

Did LCpls of cavalry, specifically Hussars, wear the regimental arm badges prior to the war? It is my understanding that they were worn only by NCOs, the Lance rank being an appointment only.

The few photos of officers during the war show what appear to be the standard cap badge, the 5th having a different design. I am sure some must have had the unique 5th, but as usual in the war, the...

That is the correct Royal Stewart tartan. The backing is immaterial and just added for reinforcement.

It is indeed for the bell top Shako, an officer's example. Being silver, I would assume for some volunteer unit. I believe the red and white ball was worn by a number of regiments/battalions.

It is Japanese, the usual mix of Kanji and Hiragana. Unfortunately my Japanese is no longer good enough to translate. It is definitely post war.

Line regimental pioneers C1914

Did all line infantry regiment have pioneers in the pre 1914 era? I cannot recall ever having seen the crossed axes sleeve badge on a highland regiment soldier for example.

17/21L in the 60s

The ancient British Army, replete with proper posh officers. There is a concomitant series on the Guards of this time as well. Enjoy.
