Title Surrey Yeomanry sweetheart brooch/veteran's badge
Nationality British
Period c 1920

This design replaced the Earl of Middleton's crest when the regiment became Queen Mary's in 1911 upon the coronation of George V. It is one of those badges where it's actually quite hard to determine whether it is a veteran's pin or a sweetheart brooch; the simple answer is that it may well have served as both.

It is made of gilding metal with an electrogilt finish, the wreaths and logos being in vitreous enamel. It measures 3.9cm long.

There is some wear to this, but no obvious damage as such.

The sword [knot] arrived today, very pleased with it. Your service is very quick and you are always a pleasure to buy from.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
