Interesting badge. The officerís badge was a unique pattern though and different from the ORís.

From memory there was one Battalion (13th?) who wore the cat and cabbage badge rather than the old North Hants badge worn by all other officers.

I agree with Keith, an interesting badge. Looks very pleasing and rather nice quality. Could it potentially be an NCOs item going by the construction?

Edit: hadn’t seen Alan’s post when I started typing. A plausible explanation and fitting as an officers quality item.

Hi Ref the mint example in "T Woods" book on the Hampshire regiment badges.The example in the book is I think part of Rod Floods collection.Perhaps the people on the forum on good terms with rod could ask him.The book states worn for a short period around 1900. regards Gary
