Yes it is thanks Griff.

Badge 23. NCOs’ fleur-de-lis arm badge for the rank of Corporal and above of the Lincolnshire Yeomanry in silver embroidery on a Lincoln green background.

I am looking for the version worn on khaki.

Cheers Dean

It is larger in height but smaller in width than the cap badge Griff. My badges are back in Australia and so for its measurements I will need wait until I am back in the New Year, cheers Dean

Ok... it will be interesting to know. IF there is a metal version it might be confused with the Manchester Fleur-de-lys cap badge (just a thought)?

No evidence of a metal version being worn or produced Griff and so it is quite a distinct badge.

Here is a genuine bronzed Lincolnshire yeomanry badge with presumable the incorrect coronet snapped off.

Cheers Dean

How true thanks Griff and I search on.

Yet to right up my Northumberland Hussars and Leicestershire yeomanry collections. You can have a field day with both I’m sure as I am quite the novice.

A couple of LIY badges that might gain your expert attention, cheers Dean

Best regards Dean

Many thanks Alex. They have been fascinating to research. Not great in number or variation but fascinating all the same, cheers Dean

....Major Sleight leading his Squadron in Grimsby, 1913 ish. You can see the NCO arm badge on the Sgts but not on the L/Cpl. So by the look of the images the NCO arm badge is smaller than the Lincs Yeo cap badge.
