Default The Scout Badge

A nice portrait of a regimental scout, from his cap badge serving with the Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry although his shoulder title - in spite of my scanner's best efforts, illegible - appears to be straight and not curved which is what I would have expected.

The superb cloth example was recently sold at auction for a considerable sum.

Comments welcome.

The heading is possibly misleading but I'm surprised that I've not had any views of this great photo.

Jon,

You're right, it IS a great photo, and thanks for posting. You have had at least 35 views though... me included (twice )

Cheers,

Not quite as spectacular as the example in your pic, but here is one of mine:





(The S/T appears to be T/6/MIDDLESEX).

Thanks again,

JT

Perhaps the title is hidden by the cap's chin strap in the first photo hence the straight s/t.

The cloth example looks to be quite a sizeable badge, were the measurements given when it was recently sold?
