Title Surrey Yeomanry cap badge in white metal
Nationality British
Period c 1911-22
Price £10.00

This is the 1911 pattern cap badge in white metal. A similar badge was struck in gilding metal. This design replaced the earlier one of a sword seated on a coronet(Lord Middleton's crest). In a smaller form, the QMO version was also used as a collar dog.

The SY was first raised in 1794, disbanded in 1848 and later raised again in 1901. It amalgamated with the Sussex Yeomanry in 1922, forming two batteries of field guns as part of a four-battery unit, the 98th (Surrey & Sussex Yeomanry) Brigade, RFA. It served with distinction in both world wars.

The lugs have been removed and pin fittings substituted, but in this case the needle is missing. This may have been done to convert it into a sweetheart broach.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
