Title Sussex Yeomanry officer's cap badge, 1st pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1905
Price £60.00

The Sussex Yeomanry was one of the British county volunteer cavalry units, raised in the late 18th century. They amalgamated with the Surrey Yeomanry after WW1 and fielded two artillery batteries between them. This badge dates from the early 20th century, being later superceded by a badge with a title on a scroll underneath.

This is a die-struck field service officer's badge in a darkened patinated bronze finish, although the badge itself would appear to be struck in gilding metal. Perhaps it was once a bright badge, but I have left it exactly as it came to me, so you can make your own mind up.

The condition is excellent, apart from the oxidisation.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
