Default 1 AIR

A superb piece of Australian military history (in a Pom's opinion!). I hope that it remains untouched. l

What a superb item, wonderful piece of history.
May I have a close up of the Ayrshire Yeomanry cap badge please? And the back as well if possible.
Many thanks for sharing this with us.

Cheers

Chris

You're a star, thank you.
I'll compare it to my AY's later, see if it's a different pattern or not.
I love seeing badges like this, actually worn by serving soldiers in WW1.
Many thanks again

Chris
