Default L.H. shoulder title

Would anybody know the unit's identity of shoulder title attached? It's very well made in bronze with two lugs on reverse. Images of front and reverse are attached . At first thought possibly a variation of title to LUMSDENS HORSE, perhaps already known to members: LUMSDENS curved downwards and below HORSE curved upwards, but not sure about this one which is L.H.Thanks Piffer

Hi,

I don't believe this is anything to do with Lumsden's Horse but would think it was more for one of the many Light Horse units?

Cheerio,

Roy

I'm not sure,

So I will differ to those more qualified than I on this topic.

Cheerio,

Roy

Looks like a 1900-12 period Australian Light Horse "LH" title to me.

Hi, the lugs don't look correct for an SA Boer War badge. Saying that, there are always exceptions. My gut feel is that it isn't South African. Andrew

Default L.H.

Many thanks (to all) for replying to this query. Since it's not to Lumsden Horse and not Indian Army or IDF /AFI and hence outside my field of collecting can let it go.
