Title Connaught Rangers KC cap badge, 1896 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1914

The Connaught Rangers served with great distinction as the 88th Foot in the Peninsula War in Spain and Portugal and are, arguably, next to the Dublin Fusiliers, one of the more distinguished of the old pre-partition Irish regiments.

This is a die-struck example in gilding metal with a replacement pin at the reverse (the slider having broken, presumably). Increasingly, a hard badge to find in perfect condition, hence its inclusion here.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
