Sloach hat badge.

From what I have been able to ascertain, The Transvaal volunteers wore sloach hats as well as peaked caps.
Badges with brooch pins were worn on the sloach hats and badges with lugs were worn on the cap.

I have a version with blades, which I presume would have been officers WWI period.

I think they were disbanded by 1910-1912

Nice badge,

Great to see a collar with it too.

Cheerio,
Roy

Hi all
My set for reference. Unfortunately neither the cap nor helmet badges have the original fittings any more but I think these repairs were likely period repairs rather than something later. I think the cap badge has the remains of a brooch pin hasp on the rear.
Cheers,
Alex

Hi Shahl
Possibly pith helmet fittings, to go through the helmet? I have a couple of early SA badges which have blades and always assumed that was the purpose?
Cheers,
Alex
