QVC badge to the KOSB with a slider for the pagri.

Not had one before, not a keeper really as outside my area of interest, but are they scarce?

A nice Victorian pagri badge.

Tim,

Your statement is not totally correct, the forage cap in question was also worn by Field Officers,
Variations were:
Fretted HM Silver (HM Silver example below)
Fretted White Metal
and also as you say Silver Plate

Gerry,
Thanks for the correction. I can't recall where the information about the Adjutant came from but looking at the cap pictured in post 4 it has a field officers decorated peak which would be incorrect if the Adjutant was a Captain?

KOSB Badges lugs are E and W never N and S.

Although not a fixed slider, as is the subject of this thread, I had a KOSB with hinged slider, that I obtained in a lot from the DNW's Gaunt Archive sales.

There is a picture of it somewhere.

It was authenticated as a genuine KOSB item by Hiram, (Borderer on this Forum), and probably issued as a Glengarry badge.

Regards.

Hi Brian,
Could maybe worn on a Glengarry I said if I recall, but I very much doubt it, as it could not be worn when the Glengarry is Cocked, metal ends of the cock feather are held in place and support the cock-feather by the pin running from east to west on the cap badge, a slider badge would more than likely be on a Puggaree or on the Maroon Beret of the 7th (Galloway) Bn KOSB.

I have in my collection an officers: 'The King's Own Borderers' 1871 - 1881 Puggaree badge in brass with a hinged slider, of very good quality (see attached photographs) obviously a private commission at the officers own expense and worn on the Foreign service Helmet.

Hiram

Greetings Hiram.

Many thanks for the correction, the brain was a tad blurred when I typed the post.

Splendid Officer's badge.

Regards.

Brian

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the nice comment on the badge, he must have paid quite a tidy sum for it to be made privately, I would have thought.

Hope you are well, aye I have loads its a 'Senior Moment'

Hiram

The B&P papers record an order of 5th November 1903 that loops on badges were to be replaced by a slider; ‘Badges Universal Service Head Dress AR to be fitted with vertical shanks.’ B&P Qtn Bk, p.46, ACD/6/8166, 5814/1903. The full list of regiments comprised Bedford, Cheshire, Gloucs, W Kent, S Lancs, Royal Lancs, Liverpool, Manchester, Shropshire LI, N Stafford, E Surrey, W Surrey, Sussex, Warwick, Welsh, Worcester, Y & L, E Yorks, Lincoln, Leinster, Seaforth Highrs. It is probable however, that other regiments had been listed earlier as this order was placed a year after the pattern had been sealed.

The addition of Seaforths is unusual. All the others are found with sliders but not that one.
