Any information would be appreciated.

Looks like no one knows what badge this is.
But thought I would just add one reply to bring the thread up to top of the main page in case someone happens to spot it.

I don't know, I think there was a thread on this badge in the past ,is it a Middlesex Regt item ?

May be completely wrong.

P.B.

Yes. You are quite right Peter, tho' I'm afraid I'm a bit dyslexic when it comes to links. But anyway this is a modified Insignia of the Order of Bath adapted by the 57th Foot for use on their SBPs Shako plates and other accoutrements circa 1830 to the 1860s. When mounted on the officer's equipment these were often glazed in coloured enamels.
Max : If you put "Order of Bath" in the "Search" section, there are one or two past threads which deal with this item. Regards Jeff

I notice that it also has the Prince of Wales' motto on it if that has any relevance.

Hi Jeff,
Have done a search with "Order of Bath" and found some interesting information. But nothing definite yet. I will keep looking.
Thanks for the suggestion.

It's an adapted Eversleigh star, definitely.

Another theory I've come across is that it's a badge for the Brigade of Guards before the Irish and Welsh were formed.

It's Middlesex Regiment. There's another thread on it at http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...ad.php?t=40043
