Title 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers officer's side cap badge
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1922-56
Sold

This badge (just over 3 cm high), stamped 'Gaunt London' on the reverse, would have been worn on an officer's side cap. In 1923, the 31st DCO Lancers and the 32nd Lancers were amalgamated to form this unit (the 13th DOC Lancers). Both regiments had a common origin in the old Bombay Squadron of Cavalry, raised for service under Lord Lake.

The badge is essentially of gilding metal, gilt, with design highlights in silver (viz '13' and regimental title). Its condition is excellent.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
