Default 3rd Hussars

I have seen the Quartermaster has a very expensive 3rd Hussar arm badge up for sale. A hallmarked prancing horse. I keep looking at it and can’t decide if it is 3rd Hussars or perhaps an alternative badge.

Has anyone else looked at it with a critical eye, i would be interested in other peoples views?

Thanks

Certainly not the King's. While I am not particularly familiar with the 3H badges, I believe it is as described. The rearing horse design similar to the King's was worn up to the adoption of the long galloping horse design in late 90s.

Hi Ian
I posted the badge shown below on the Forum a year or so ago. I believe it is from the same die as that shown by the Quartermaster. Though the post received one or two replies, If I remember no definite conclusion was made. I'll try and find the post when I have a little time later today.

One interesting view, albeit not from the Forum, was that it may be related to the Prince of Wales's Own Yorkshire Regiment. Not convinced of that, or even that it is real, I thought I'd pop into their museum the next time I was in York. Unfortunately, the last time I made a trip south a nice welcoming Yorkshire pub and several pints of Sam Smiths delayed me from doing so. So that mission is still on the list of things to do.

In conclusion, it’s still an unknown to me.

Sorry guys, but thanks Dubaiguy, I’m causing confusion with the link as there are 2 arm badges on the same page. The “butch” long horse as described I believe is a 3rd hussar derivative, but I was more interested in views on the hallmarked prancing horse, which is allegedly the only one of its type that’s been discovered?

Hi I think he wants to talk about the small prancing horse badge that he had priced at £750.00? Kind regards Gary
