Is this a Royal Navy Cap Badge
« on: Thursday 12 March 09 11:03 GMT (UK) »
Would appreciate any help in confiming what this is, I think its a Naval Cap Badge, but I am not 100% sure.

Thanks

Hi


I am getting more confused by the minute lol, I have one in the Navy and one in the Raf and Possibly one in the South Lancashire Prince of Wales Volunteers (no Idea who though).

Would any of that tie in with this badge????

It is actually a "Bugle Horn"   ;D

But most assuredly Army... ;)

Looks more like a collar dog, by the cotter pin to the rear.

Without embellishments or designations, the only one that fits is Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry


The South Lancs Rifle Volunteers would have had a 48 in the centre...
One more charge and then be dumb,

        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Hi

All the other medals are for the South Lancashires, so I now don't understand where this one fits in at all???/

Mmmmm

Well that is a collar dog and shoulder title for the South Lancs!

But where your Bugle Horn comes in I know not!!

It was quite common for soldiers to swap / collect other Regts badges....

And sometimes put them on a "Hate Belt" like this...

One more charge and then be dumb,
