Default WW1 Rifles - Prince of Wales Feathers ?

Can anyone advise which Rifles regiments during WW1 had the Prince of Wales Feathers as their cap badge?

I know of the 15th Battalion the London Regiment (Civil Service Rifles). Were there any other regiments?

Any insights welcome!

The Wiltshire and also the Denbighshire Yeomanry also wore the PoW feathers without any other scroll. Badges were in bronze and bimetal.

There were not any Rifle regts other than the 15th Londons. However there are photos of welsh regiment soldiers wearing the feathers without the scroll - these were bimetal.

Thank you for the information!

Did 15th Londons have both scroll and no scroll?

There was only one version which was the POW feathers and ich dien title. Many other regts used the same device but with a unit title scroll underneath.

While most images I can find are without scroll, I have also found this one with a scroll 'Civil Service Rifles'.

I suspect that is a sweetheart or mufti badge.

The information supplied by Alan regards the POW badges is quite correct.
