Title Post Office Rifles/8th London Regiment cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1914-22

This WW1-era badge has battle honours going back to the Boer War and the Egyptian campaign of 1882. Formed in London in 1868, the Post Office Rifles saw service on the Western Front in WW1. The badge changed in 1922, when the 7th and 8th Battalions merged and the 7th Battalion badge was worn by both units.

This is a die-struck white metal badge, with a nice brazing join where the slider meets the badge itself, and a good hard slider to boot, definitely not a re-strike!

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
