Default Staffordshire Yeomanry

It would appear that the regiment continued to wear QVC insignia for some time. There are other WW1 photos and all have the QVC.

A well known picture. They continued to wear the QVC badge long after WW1.

Ditto the QOOH.

Even into the 1950s by some senior NCOs. There is a series of photographs in the Staffordshire Archives of a Staff Sergeant receiving his Territorial Efficiency Medal from a local dignitary and he is wearing a QVC badge.

Which begs the question, did the ever wear the KC? Or was this regimental custom as the QOOH?

Yes, both Staffs Yeo and QOOH wore the KC versions. Plenty of photos of them in wear.

Staff Yeo the badge exists in GM with a KC. QOOH KC versions are found in GM, WM and Bronzed GM finish.

In the 1960s the Staffs Yeo badge in brass was still being worn with a king's crown by cadets. I have posted a photo on the forum before, The badges were certainly made and issued with the k/c but the Staffs Yeo themselves held on to QVC ones as long as possible - probably getting cast brass ones made in North Africa in WW2. These were all the simple staffs knot and coronet rather than the more complex officers pattern made in w/m and a/a.

The KC badge was worn by Staffs Yeo in WW2 as was the QVC still, I’ve seen several photos of both in wear during the conflict.

I believe the KC was first worn shortly before WW2 but that the QVC version was still widely worn even thereafter.

So this button is not pre-1901 as I always thought?

I don’t know I’m afraid you’ll need a button guru to answer I expect. Might be worth posting your question in a new thread in the Military Buttons section.
