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.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.

Swords mattered [arrived?]. I am very content. You still have which good swords for the sale?
