Hey

I've been trying to figure out what these are and I think they are royal Irish Regiment? And the first 2 are for caubeens ? But why does the last one have a Slider as I cant see any online?

The 1st one LH is the current issue R.Irish caubeen badge
The centre is Royal Irish Rangers caubeen badge ,predecessor of the R.Irish
The 3rd RH is the R.Irish beret badge. I'm sure that when they came into existence they wore a beret not a caubeen. Col Tim Collins badgered for this to be changed. Which it was,badge was as 3 but with lugs rather than a slider.

Upon creation they wore the beret in working dress and the Caubeen in No2 dress. The beret was seen as a UDR item and unpopular with the Regualrs. Tim Collins had the caubeen adopted in working dress by the 1st bn.

Since you are talking about the caubeen I have questions about mine. My Caubeen its black. So you are saying the badge does not belong on this and belongs on a regular beret? Or is my badge a larger variation of the one on the right that does belong on a Caubeen?
