Title 9th Lancers (Hodson's Horse) collar dog/cap badge
Nationality British Empire
Period 1916

This silver badge has London hallmarks for 1916. There is also a maker's logo on the reverse. The design was used 1903-22. It was worn by officers both as a collar dog (on mess kit) and also on the side cap. The regiment was named after its first colonel, who was killed in the Indian Mutiny inadvisedly clearing a house of its occupants.

It is 3 cm tall and its condition is virtually as struck.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
