Default New South Wales Lancers - bullion field service cap badge 1890s

Hi All,

Here's an exceptionally rare badge. A New South Wales Lancers bullion field service cap badge circa 1890s.

The only one I have ever seen.

Attributed to LTCOL Sulman of the NSW Lancers and now on display in the Lancer Barracks Museum.

Enjoy!

Mick

Very nice indeed!

Am no uniform aficionado but is it not technically a torin? Happy to stand corrected as the man in the orthopaedic shoes said.

To me its a field service cap or forage cap or garrison cap. Guess it can also be described as a torin.

Either way a super rare badge and cap.

Very nice Mick, they did lovely work in those days.

I note the scarlet backed badge on the slouch hat behind it too. Just a shame we're not allowed to wear badge backings these days (for all Corps), they would look awesome now the badge is worn on the puggaree.

Ahh, just read your second post and it isn't a scarlet backing, the whole badge is cloth

Yes mate - they are certainly very well made.

Their full dress uniform is quite spectacular.

The museum is a small one but worth a look. Open on Sundays.
