1914 Star 1/Gloucestershire Regiment

Interesting it has the Gloucestershire Regt back badge attached. The Regiment was given the unique honour of wearing a badge on the back of their caps to commemorate fighting back to back at the battle of Alexandria in 1801.

As worn on all orders of head dress, I show an officers OSD cap and a member of the Home Guards steel helmet, both with the back badge proudly worn.

Thanks  to  you  and Graham  for  your most valuable input
