Title North Irish Horse cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1908-18

This was the successor badge to the North of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry on their reorganisation in 1908 into the Special Reserve. They fought with distinction in France in 1914 and then, after a period of suspended animation from 1921-39, were reraised to fight as an armoured car regiment in N. Africa in 1943, finally serving with Valentine tanks.

It is a die-struck badge in gilding metal and the condition is excellent.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
