I have no questions about the badge as such, but have nevertheless questions about the regiment it belongs to.

Is this a pre 1901 type crown? There was no regiment with the title Rajput Rifles.

I know of the same badge (stringed bugle with RR), but with a KC. That is the one of the 6th Rajputana Rifles (from 1922, from 1945 The Rajjputana Rifles).

Can you explain who used this badge?

I was incorrect in the title of the regiment. The style of crown I have seen online shows both types

Thanks for the explanation. I see you corrected the title of the thread.

Post from 1914.

Quote:
1. Gaylor ( pg 150, Sons of JC ) - ‘ the 1st Bn insisted on a
difference and persisted in wearing a badge which carried
the old flat-topped Victorian crown ' ( the badge chosen for
the new 6th RR was the black stringed bugle-horn with the
letters 'RR' between the strings )

Again, thanks. Thus the badge can be attributed to 1st Bn, 6th Rajputana Rifles.

My main confusion was of course the mentioning of a regiment named Rajput Rifles, which I did not know it ever existed. But all is clear now.
