Default Norfolk Volunteers - badge question

Good morning,

The attached image is from Norfolk Regt Man. It shows badges of the Norfolk Volunteers. I have a few questions about the badges.

Does the King’s Crown mean the badge was issued after 1902?

Was there a pre-1902 Queen’s Crown version?

When was this style of badge introduced? When was it withdrawn?

What style of badge preceded this one?

Rob.

The Crown is actually a Coronet and was used in Victorian times. It is the same style of coronet a sworn by the 20th Hussars circa 1896-1902.

That is very helpful. Combinations of men and uniform that seemed impossible now begin to make sense. Thank you.

Would still like to know what/when came before this badge. Anybody?

If it's a hat badge then to understand that you need to know what hat it was worn on.

In all likelihood it was for a side cap which replaced the cavalry's badgeless pill box cap in the late 1890s and the Infantry's Glengarry. being Volunteers they may have done their own thing of course.

This was the 3rd's Glengary

With a monogram NVR, isnt it more likely to be a WW1 VTC unit badge if indeed the NVR stands for Norfolk Volunteer Regiment?

regards

The VTC badge in K&K is not this one. Correction - the VTC had several badges so it might be.

Forage caps, but I am I am no expert.

The wearer in the attached image (uncredited because I have lost the details) was a member of 2 Volunteer Bn, Norfolk Regiment, from 1883 to 1912. I have a second image of unrelated Volunteers in frock coats with this cap badge - they are posing with men in grey uniforms, not finally forsaken until 1888 by 4 Vol Bn, Norfolk Regt.
