Title King Edward's Own 18th Cavalry Regiment officer's silver collar badge
Nationality British Empire
Period 1925
Price £60.00

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.

The regiment had a long and distinguished career serving all over the world:Africa, Burma, Egypt, not to mention the North West Frontier and during WW1. The badge was in use 1922-51.

It is die-struck silver and is in good condition.
