Default Warwickshire Yeomanry c1914

Great War period Badges show the Bear chained by the head to the ragged post & the Bears feet on the ground and not with one foot on the ragged post?

From what date did the "foot up & collared Chain loose" start appearing?

Foot up and "collared chain loose"

Acording to KK the Imperial title was dropped from yeomanry badges in 1908 and new badges were made.

Hi Malc

Does K&K show the badge shown above? If so what date do they give (if any)?

For Luke H :-

An Imperial Yeomanry cap badge with the foot down...... a great war cap badge with the foot up.

*The original post above contained a hot link to an eBay item ...... thats why you can not see it now.

Thanks very much for getting back to me Griff.

It’s a shame the eBay link is long dead as it sounds like it might’ve been a photograph of this badge in wear which is a bit of an anomaly and I suspect possibly a WW1 manufacturing mistake.

The search continues...
