badges

This field covers, in the main, headdress badges of many different parts of the world, but also includes cross-belt plates, etc. An interesting example is the parallel existence of regimental badges for the British and Austrian armies, fighting on opposing sides in WW1, something unique to these two countries. Good reference books include: Kipling & King's two volumes on headdress badges of the British Army; John Gaylor's book on cap badges of the British Army; Ashok Nath's book, Izzat: Historical Records and Iconography of Indian Cavalry Regiments 1750-2007 (published 2009 by the Centre for Armed Forces Historical Research United Service Institution of India), a superb rendering of this extremely complex subject, beautifully illustrated.

militaria item 48th Cavalry (Indian Army) cap badge, white metal
- British Empire
This was an armoured unit of the Indian Army, which was raised as a wartime expedient in 1941 at Lahore from a nucleus of officers and men provided by the 19th KJO Lancers. It was disbanded in early 1944, the men reverting to their former unit. This badge was the white metal version worn by other ranks. The officers' version lacked the tank.

militaria item Probyn's Horse belt plate centre, white metal
- British Empire
This would have been worn until the amalgamation of Probyn's Horse with the 12th Cavalry in 1922. It would appear to be an other ranks example and was worn on a rectangular white metal plate. Probyn's Horse became King Edward's Own Lancers in 1906, having sported the Prince of Wales title since 1876.

militaria item 1914-18 Surrey Yeomanry shoulder title
- British
This is the classic war time badge, worn on both shoulders by the troopers and NCOs of the SY. It was probably worn after the 1922 amalgamation with the Sussex Yeomanry until the introduction of cloth titles in WW2. Surprisingly, it is rather harder to find than the cap badge.
