Title Honourable Artillery Company cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1914
Sold

The HAC was founded in 1537 by Henry VIII and is arguably the oldest of the London regiments. They still have their original headquarters (with extensive grounds) in the City of London. They functioned as an officers' training corps in WW1 and also served with two battalions on the Western Front.

This is a one-piece die-struck gilding metal badge with a brass slider brazed to the reverse of the flames.

It is a little worn on the highlights, but not excessively.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
