Logically, it would have to be the T/RAMC/Eastern shoulder title.

Simon,
You are definitely logical, yes, the T/RAMC/EASTERN shoulder title, it came in a job lot which included a damaged bullet and part of a shell drive band which no doubt could tell some stories.

I have collected items to 1st Eastern General Hospital and have photos and magazines which were produced during the Great War for years and have long looked for this title, dealers never seem to have it and I almost gave up when this lot appeared.

I did some research into this badge and the regiment's own history seems to indicate that it was briefly worn by the 1968 cadre. They are quite rare but they do come along as I managed to find one a few years ago.

Default 6th Inniskillen Dragoon Guards

I was lucky enough to find my holy grail this year courtesy of Robbie at Dead Spartan. The jubilee badge from 6th Inniskillen Dragoon Guards.

One happy man!
