Default tropical? CSM/WOII

A lovely, good quality rank insignia badge in bullion with an off white, padded backing with press stud fittings.

White backed rank badges were worn on No1 Dress and smaller on Mess Dress by a number of regiments and corps including 17/21L, QRL, 13/18H, RASC, RCT and PWO

With 'Press Studs' more likely for 'Warm Weather' No11 Mess Dress (White Jacket) than 'Temperate' No10 Mess Dress where they are normally stitched as are No1 Dress.

No3 'Warm Weather' is the equivalent to No1 Dress.

As Grumpy says for RQMS not CSM

If a little pedantry is permitted, both the CSM and the RQMS have been the same rank since 1915, as WO II, but the RQMS is the senior appointment.

Half the Colour sergeants of infantry were appointed CSMs on the creation of the 4 company organisation in 1914 and then did exceptionally well out of the changes of May 1915 and leaped to near equality with the RQMS. I doubt if the RQMS was delighted.

I am always happy to be enlightened by the wisdom of the forum

the KC version, I thought the white cream baking was linked to the KOYLI.
All the best

I have that one as the Royal Hampshire Regiment.

Happy to be corrected.

White cream baking is definitely Army Catering Corps.
