Smile King's Liverpool Regiment VB

Hi all,

I thought of Peter Brydon and his excellent research of the badges of the KLR when I saw this cabinet photo from Liverpool photographer Edward Roger and so am posting without complete confidence that it is actually a KLR soldier.

I think I can make out his shoulder strap to read as 1 or 2 VB LIVERPOOL and his headdress bears a small silver or WM QVC Maltese Cross style Boss badge. It is of the style of the 1st VB KLR Helmet Plate I have seen.

Enjoy, cheers Dean.

Dean,

A great photo, I am pretty sure that he is 2nd V.B. and that what appears to be a white metal or silver boss badge may be reflections on a blackened brass badge. I have no evidence of a white metal/ silver boss badge for other ranks of the unit.

Attached is a picture of a 2nd V.B. boss badge and the second picture is of a 2nd V.B shoulder strap.

The plume would be black over red.

Thanks for showing

Peter

Thanks Peter,

The photograph when viewed under a good lens would appear to me to bare 2nd VB Liverpool shoulder strap.

I hear you on the boss badge. I have been caught in reflections myself.

If you would like it could let me have your postal address as a PM or as an email and I will send it to you as you have been very helpful and generous to me.

Best regards Dean.
