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 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.

When the 2nd Lancers and 4th Cavalry amalgamated to form the new 2nd Lancers (Gardner's Horse) in 1922, this badge was chosen.
