Smile The Leicestershire Regiment acquisition

Hi all,

Here we have an Indian mess servants jacket collar badge or possibly a puggaree badge in cast WM with KC and letters L and R intertwined. Indian mess waiters I am told could not wear the same badges as the regiment that they waited upon. Pictured in Churchill Fig 534 and a larger version was worn in the puggarree but sadly no size provided. Mine is 39x24mm on copper lugs N-S.

Regards Dean

Sorry Wayne had not seen your post. Mess jacket badges are not well documented but Churchill has a few in his collar badge book.

Nothing wrong with tigers.

Album will have some new pics soon, cheers Dean.
