Title Sussex Yeomanry officer's cap badge, 1st pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1905
Price £60.00

The Sussex Yeomanry was one of the British county volunteer cavalry units, raised in the late 18th century. They amalgamated with the Surrey Yeomanry after WW1 and fielded two artillery batteries between them. This badge dates from the early 20th century, being later superceded by a badge with a title on a scroll underneath.

This is a die-struck field service officer's badge in a darkened patinated bronze finish, although the badge itself would appear to be struck in gilding metal. Perhaps it was once a bright badge, but I have left it exactly as it came to me, so you can make your own mind up.

The condition is excellent, apart from the oxidisation.

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
