Default Guide for the anodised (large) Surrey Yeomanry

Gents, for interests sake.

A recent acquisition, find attached the 'master's pattern for the large Surrey Yeomanry cap badge, which was to be the guide for the 'kings crown' anodised alluminium example.
This badge is in gilding metal with a brass slider marked JR GAUNT. LONDON in small font on the slider.

Dated 1952, this badge has a catalogue number of CB 2875, with the proposed anodised alluminium example to have CB 3299 it would appear.

Ah, a typo - apologies - should read 'gilding metal'. Unless I'm, corrected the general given term for gold/ brass coloured metals., often referred to as brass ( I'm sure there are specific percentages of certain metals, but effectively gold coloured).

Hope that makes sense.

Hi Guys,

The list of changes introducing the A/A badge was dated 30th April 1952 and as Bess55 shows the older pattern badge was used as a guide for the new A/A large item. This was quite common in the early 1950's as it negated the use of samples being made in A/A for a new pattern card.

By List of Changes change C 8798, dated 30th November 1957, the large A/A version with Tudor Crown (if indeed any were ever made) was deemed obsolete being replaced by the St. Edwards Crown piece again in a large size. These St. Edwards Crown pieces have now surfaced and a few collectors have them.

Regards,

Chris
