militaria item 13th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers officer's cap badge
- British Empire
This badge (4.5 cm high) would have been worn on an officer's peaked service 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.

militaria item 6th Duke of Connaught's Own Lancers officer's helmet badge
- British Empire
This badge (nearly 6 cm tall), stamped 'Firmin London' on the reverse, would have been worn on the officers' white pith helmet. The 6th DCO Lancers were formed from an amalgamation of the 13th and 16th Lancers in 1922.

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.

militaria item Scinde Horse officer's silver cap or collar badge
- 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.

militaria item 2nd Lancers (Gardner's Horse) officer's silver mess dress collar badge (facing right)
- British Empire
'SCINDE' inscribed on the scroll was an honour previously borne by the old 4th Cavalry and first granted to its ancestor the 6th Bengal Irregular Cavalry for exceptional services in Sind during 1844. When the 2nd Lancers and 4th Cavalry amalgamated to form the new 2nd Lancers (Gardner's Horse) in 1922, this badge was chosen.

militaria item 14th Middlesex plate for 1871 pattern Home Service helmet
- British
This OR's example was worn on the Home Service pattern helmet from about 1880 to 1908. The unit was raised primarily from members of the legal profession as the 23rd Middlesex Rifle Volunteers in 1860, changing its number to 14th in 1880 and joining the Rifle Brigade in 1881 as one of its allotted volunteer battalions.

militaria item 17th Foot glengarry badge, OR's
- British
This is a period example of a 17th Foot (Leicestershire Regiment) - the lugs are in the classic North/South position that one would expect to find on originals. The regiment's nick name 'The Tigers' stems from their extensive service in India in the 18th and 19th centuries. For reference, this can be found as no 446 in Kipling & King.

militaria item 53rd Foot glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
- British
The original badges were in service 1874-1881. Mr Fox's re-strikes were produced from original dies c 1889-1902 to satisfy the demand of collectors at that time, and were quite faithful to the originals, except for the placing of the lugs at the middle, rather than North/South as on the originals.

militaria item 7th Foot, Royal Fusiliers glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
- British
This is the smallest type of badge for the 7th Foot - almost certainly one of Mr Fox's re-strikes. It is, as far as the obverse is concerned, good and a near contemporary example, while the reverse is slightly fuzzy. It is priced accordingly.

...acquiring this bayonet has completely changed my way of thinking on collecting bayonets. I have become extremely fond of the bayonet... Thanking you once again for the very professional way in which you handled the money [going to the wrong account] problem.
