Title Surrey Yeomanry cap badge in white metal
Nationality British
Period c 1911-22
Price £10.00

This is the 1911 pattern cap badge in white metal. A similar badge was struck in gilding metal. This design replaced the earlier one of a sword seated on a coronet(Lord Middleton's crest). In a smaller form, the QMO version was also used as a collar dog.

The SY was first raised in 1794, disbanded in 1848 and later raised again in 1901. It amalgamated with the Sussex Yeomanry in 1922, forming two batteries of field guns as part of a four-battery unit, the 98th (Surrey & Sussex Yeomanry) Brigade, RFA. It served with distinction in both world wars.

The lugs have been removed and pin fittings substituted, but in this case the needle is missing. This may have been done to convert it into a sweetheart broach.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
