Hi, following on from the officer's post would these be officers badge and collars or did they have something else? I also have an IY bronze cap/collar when would these have been worn? In addition I have a pair of gilt collars, who would have worn those? thanks in advance Mike

Hi Voltigeur, thank you for the photos, from them I assume they wore the bronze version of the cap as a collar and that the bronze cap and collars I have show are probably Devon yeomanry. Could anyone confirm that? thanks in advance Mike

Also, the unit's first officers were posted to the WDs from the 1st Royal Dragoons.They brought with them the Royals' then-current cap badge. Thats why the WD Officers wore the bullion Royal Crest until 2007.
