Always nice to see cap badges where they belong, on their original caps.  My 3 FS caps for the 3 main Welch regiments, no offence to the Welsh Guards, but they were only formed during WWI and the others have much longer histories than that.

 

 

They are, left to right, Royal Welch Fusiliers -officers coloured FS cap-, the Welch Regiment -OR's FS cap- and the South Wales Borderers -OR's coloured FS cap.

Thanks E-J and always glad to see these are appreciated.  I know you really like the RWF silver and bullion dragon, a beautiful badge.

Great caps.   SUPERB :thumbup:

Thanks Dave.

 

The RWF is an Indian made example and dates to circa 1938 and almost certainly belonged to an officer of the 2nd Battalion who were stationed there at that date.  The Welch is dated 1940 and the cap badge is an unusual variant that has been identified as being used by the 4th (Llanelli) battalion.  The SWB is WWII in style, but is not dated, though interestingly the badge has the owners service number stamped on the slider and he was originally a member of the Monmouthsire regiment.

I have not got into the AA badges, YET, but I will probably try and get one for the 3 regiments!

 

Very nice example and maker marked as well.  From the 50's I think and has the correct tapered slider typical of this maker, the copies are less tapered.
