militaria item 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers officer's cap badge
- British Empire

Both regiments had a common origin in the old Bombay Squadron of Cavalry, raised for service under Lord Lake.

militaria item King Edward's Own 18th Cavalry Regiment officer's silver collar badge
- British Empire
This London hallmarked example is just 3 cm tall. The regiment has its origins in 1842, formed as the 8th Bengal Irregular Cavalry at Fatehgarh. During the Mutiny the greater part of the troopers deserted, but all the Indian officers and most of the NCOs stood firm. Thus the unit was not disbanded, unlike so many other Bengal cavalry regiments.

- British Empire
This Birmingham hallmarked example (just over 2.5 cm tall) would have been worn (1922-51) by the Scinde Horse (14th POW Own Cavalry), an amalgamation in 1921 of various Bombay cavalry units. In particular, this meant both of John Jacob's old cavalry regiments being reunited in one command.
