Title 6th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers cap badge
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1922-56
Price £30.00

This regiment's other title was Watson's Horse. In 1947, on Partition, it transferred to the Pakistan Army as the 6th Lancers. A Captain Michael Allmand of this regiment won a posthumous VC for gallantry in northern Burma in 1944.

This badge was worn by both officers and other ranks. It could conceivably be an officer's version as it appears to be silver plated, the other ranks being white metal. The silver plate appearance of the badge is confirmed by the fact that the lugs also have a silvered finish, unlike the lugs on most other ranks badges which tend to have a copper finish.

This badge is in excellent condition, with a little minor distortion from age and service. It is just under 39mm high.

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.
