Default LEEDS GRAMMAR SCHOOL OTC

Interesting that Leeds Grammar school adopted the DofW badge as early as 1922.

Not wishing to be outdone by a Yorkshire OTC, here is a picture of members of the Liverpool Institute OTC wearing the cap badge of The Kings Liverpool Regiment in September 1918.

I never really understood that as a choice - Leeds is and was always in the recruiting area for The West Yorkshire Regiment/Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire whereas the Dukes recruiting area was Halifax, Huddersfield, Keighley, Skipton (and surrounding areas)

That is truly a unique badge. Beats the Dukes in my opinion.
