Smile WW1 Cavalry Collection

Hi all,

Nearly there on a representative collection of WW1 British cavalry badges and shoulder titles. One title to go and then will pop them in an album with each badge and title shown separately as well.

Cheers Dean

Thumbs up

Good job Dean, I've manage to get all the cap badges shown, not that easy with the cost involved, I particularly like the addition of the titles, sets the collection off.
Well done Tony.

Thanks Tony and Andy - I put titles under my infantry set and found it quite effective.

I am being stretched on the yeomanry set but London's are not so daunting, cheers Dean.

Good evening.
Superb collection.
I would also like to have all the titles!
If I succeed, I would send a picture of my cap badges of the cavalry.

Nicely set out J-Paul,

I had started out with the QVC cavalry amongst mine but decided to put them to one side for now and display separately, cheers Dean.

Default cavalry badges.

Maybe i`m being picky but shouldn`t the V in GvR hang free from the R and not be butted up against it in the Horse Guards and other similar badges?

I hate to piss on your parade Dean but there is a 10H shoulder title. Nothing to do with jealousy after you got that 6D off Tony recently which is the only one I want of course.

Dean, I thought the 12th Lancers badge you have there went out of use long before WW1, unless you know something I don't.

Ok chaps - I have a 10H shoulder title however the oracle of shoulder title books Westlake's has a note that the regiment favoured XRH and a chap I correspond with suggested to me that in pics he had seen the XRH on Great War pics a fact I shall check up on. Sorry on the 6D Keith but we have been doing badly at cricket lately! I simply asked if any member had one and bam that was that thanks to Tony.

I will concede on the 12th Lancers as I have indeed added my earlier pre-1993 version and although it could have continued to be worn long after I am happy to swap that out.

As to hanging V in the GVR badges these were vetted in my cavalry album sometime ago but happy to review when I post them singularly in the album.

Would like to have them as a genuine set and have quite a few doubles so swapping out should not be an issue so please don't hold back.

Cheers Dean

I think the RHG is a dud sorry with no void between the V and R.

I must have nodded off - I think it is the rhythmic swaying one gets on horseback, cheers Dean.

Hello everyone.
I am French and live in Artois.
I am very happy to see so many specialists on this forum !! Maybe it will be soon a microscope before buying a badge !!
I have been collecting for over 25 years .... and I certainly have copies in my collections. But for me it is more the symbol that represents every object that matters to me. It is enough to see them engraved on the stelae of the countless military cemeteries of the comonwealth in my region.

Good windy autumn day.
J-Paul

PS: by the way, is this attached is it good? He comes from the Somme not far from here.
