Default 8th Kings Royal Irish Hussars....Nice.

This little beauty came through the letter box today.
I'm very pleased with it, thought it worth sharing.
Tony.

Thanks Eric and Tim.
Yes I'm leaning towards an Edwardian badge.
Cheers Tony.

Yes, the quality of the dies and materials used are very typical, a truly superb example, although, you can't ask as much, in monetary terms, as you could for a Victorian example.
Not that you would, it is certainly one to keep!
