Title North Irish Horse cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1908-18
Sold

This was the successor badge to the North of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry on their reorganisation in 1908 into the Special Reserve. They fought with distinction in France in 1914 and then, after a period of suspended animation from 1921-39, were reraised to fight as an armoured car regiment in N. Africa in 1943, finally serving with Valentine tanks.

It is a die-struck badge in gilding metal and the condition is excellent.

testimonials

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.
