Title Skinner's Horse bi-metal cap badge/collar dog, officer's
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1922-1951
Price £50.00

This badge (3.2 cm tall) served as both an officer's collar dog for mess kit or a side cap badge from 1935-1951. This is the last design worn by this distinguished regiment at the end of the Empire in India. Skinner's Horse's nickname was the Yellow Boys, after the colour of their tunic. They were one of the oldest regiments of the Indian Army.

The overall finish is gilt, whereas the central rose has a silver finish, carefully riveted to the frame. Its condition is virtually as struck.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.

Thank you. I have received the bayonet. It is indeed in excellent condition and miracle! It fits my antique P53 perfectly.
