It doesn't look anything like the one described/drawn in Peter Seamans or the photograph of the badge on its own or of being worn in the Lineker & Dyne book.

Griff et all

Please see attached images, which are courtesy of & extracts from The history of the British Infantry Collar badge by Colin Churchill.

In general self-explaintary, but I would made the following observations:

1) The 'Ebay' 3H Arm badge? measures 30mm high x 36mm wide according to the seller. Which corresponds very closely to the dimensions Fig. 259 & 260 as portrayed actual size. Also these collars look IMO almost identical to this 'Arm Badge'.

2) The Dimension of the 3H Rearing Horse Arm Badge, according to L&D 19.2-3H example 35mm High x 36.4mm wide. I suspect the one put up by tony will be similar in size.

3) If the above is correct it begs the question, how many collars have been sold in the past as Arm badges?

Lastly, it is good to note Fig.261 an image of an early 3H Collar which I have been searching for an image of for a while, and I find it in an Infantry reference book!! anyone have any images of this in wear?

I hope this is of interest

Rob

Just as a matter of interest I have acquired some copies of Crown Imperial from 1979 in which there is an illustrated article on Cavalry NCO`s arm badges by Douglas Hill. ( Badges and photographs by Walter Lambert )

I thought it might be interesting to show the picture and entry for the 3rd Hussars which I hope will be legible.

P.B.

Thanks Griff,


Interesting to compare badge No.13 from this picture of an old Kings Regiment collection with badge 17 in the Arm Badge article.

Default 3rd Hussars or ??

Yesterday I found a couple of copies of the Crown Imperial magazine from the 1970`s that I had forgotten about.

In the issue for June 1979 was an article on British Cavalry Arm badges and the badge No.17 which is described as a 3rd Hussars "prancing white horse of Hanover " looked familiar.

It appears similar if not identical to badge No 13 in the photograph I have of the Kings Liverpool collection of the late Harry Usher.

Looking in Linaker and Dine there is nothing like badge 17 in the Crown Imperial article. There is however another similar badge in Churchill ( 258 ) which appears to be a collar badge of the 6th V.B. Kings Liverpool Regiment.

I would be very interested in any comments from Cavalry collectors.

Thanks

P.B.

Default 3rd Hussars arm badge

Hi all

Just thought I reactivate this thread in view of the one Peter has posted.

The moderators might consider it apt/useful to combine the two?

Rob
