Default Rifle Brigade and Greenjackets Brigade badges

I have recently purchased two nice anodised cap badges . One is a Green Jackets Brigade badge, the other is a Guelphic crowned Rifle Brigade badge.
Can anyone shed any light about the timeline in which these would have been worn? And by whom

Thanks in advance.

John

The RB was a 1950's Regular and TA badge and then worn by the TA in the '60s. The Regulars wore the GJ Bde badge until the formation of the Royal Green Jackets in the 1960s.

The RGJ Brigade lasted form 1958 - 1 Jan 66 when the RGJ was formed. This was a couple of years before most Brigade badges were dropped.

Default Rifle Brigade Monument

Hi all.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me? I'm looking for a closeup photo of the Rifle Brigade Monument. The soldier on the left it's his cockade that isn't clear in the photo I have found.

Many thanks

Liz
