There's an example illustrated in Renfrew's "British Colonial Badges" - " 1094 is Ceylon Light Infantry helmet plate circa 1890" 1097 is "Ceylon Light Infantry Cap badge 1881>1949" - Tim

Hi Tim,

Thanks... yes I have that book - and sorry, I should have been more specific... I am looking for examples of period photos of CLI officers showing the badges in wear (or alternately pics of original headdress with badge affixed). Have anything like that?
