militaria item Gloucestershire Regiment cap badge, 1896 pattern
- British
This commemorates the service of the Gloucestershire Regiment in Egypt in 1801, unique in the annals of the British Army, inasmuch as they are the only regiment to wear the back badge commemorating the moment when the rear file of the regiment was ordered to turn around and fire at the French who were attempting to take them from behind.

militaria item Royal Engineers horseshoe sweetheart brooch, George VI
- British
The Royal Engineers were responsible for bridge/road building, mine fields, their laying and clearance, etc. These brooches would have been worn by women on their handbags and lapels to commemorate the service of their men in the field, a tradition which started in the Boer War.

militaria item Dublin High Court official's cap/collar badge
- British
This is a particularly fine die-struck gilt badge (4 x 4.5cm), possibly fire gilt (as opposed to electro-gilt), with the coat of arms of Dubin in the centre, backed by the sword and scales of justice and a civic mace, topped by the burgher's crown. A court official (eg the Tipstaff of the Court) would have worn this.

militaria item Baden-Powell photographic buttonhole
- British
This shows quite a nice head-and-shoulders portrait photo of Baden-Powell wearing the hat popularised later by the Boy Scout movement, which he founded. His original glory came from the defence of Mafeking. There were great celebrations throughout the Empire when Mafeking was relieved and this is an example of what this euphoria produced.

militaria item 17th Lancers veteran's buttonhole, unhallmarked silver
- British
The 17th Lancers gained eternal fame in the Charge of the Light Brigade, along with other Light Cavalry regiments, but their use of the skull and crossbones as an emblem goes back to the 18th century. According to King & Kipling's Head-Dress Badges of the British Army vol. 2, this exact design was a sealed pattern of 30th July 1927.

militaria item VR lapel pin in pinchbeck
- British
This could be a commemorative piece for any of the late Victorian Jubilee celebrations. Alternatively, it is just possibly an ordinary patriotic piece with no particular date. Her long reign spanned from 1837-1901, but my guess is that this was definitely made towards the latter end of it.

militaria item Lapel pin with Spanish Royal Arms, silver
- British
This shows the Spanish Royal Arms (probably those of Alphonso XIII, king of Spain from 1886 until his death in 1941 in exile in Rome) surrounded by the Collar of the Golden Fleece, all in enamel. These little badges may have been made to order by royalists in exile during the Spanish Civil War.

militaria item Queen's Westminster Rifle Volunteers helmet plate
- British
This was worn on the Home Service helmet, constructed from cork, and, in this case, covered with grey cloth. The crowned portcullis device in the centre is from the arms of the City of Westminster. The QWR, founded in 1860, served with great distinction all through the 20th century's wars.

militaria item 1st Middlesex (Metropolitan) Light Horse officer's undress sabretache badge
- British
Mr D J Knight has kindly enlightened me about this badge (which might also be an other ranks pouch badge, though I think it is too big)! The company was raised in 1861 and disbanded in 1866. The dress version has a similar design in embroidery. This badge measures 4 1/8 x 3 1/2 inches.

militaria item Ceylon Mounted Rifles martingale badge
- British Empire
The parent unit (Ceylon Light Infantry) was raised in the last quarter of the 19th century from planters, purely British European personnel, and served with distinction in the Boer War and later on in WW1 at Gallipoli. The Ceylon Mounted Infantry contingent then became Ceylon Mounted Rifles in 1906.
