At the risk of repeating myself with the emergence of every new British Army unit or cap badge over the last few years :D, 'Where will this regiment be in the Order of Precedence?'

Would this suggest the Londons coming together under the single 'G' Guards Company cap badge (star?), doing away with the Scottish, Irish and Rifles?

I think that practice came about in the late 1980s, long after the Royal Horse Guards amalgamated with the Royal Dragoons (1st Dragoons) to form the Blues & Royals (1969).

Royal Horse Guards - Red Backing?

Hi,

Just a quick question - did the Royal Horse Guards wear a red/scarlet backing or insert behind the cypher on their badge?

Cheers
