Officer's Circlet Headdress and Collar Badges


Figure 331: Major Richard Ernest Noel Twopenny MC and bar circa 1916 wearing Officer's circlet bronze headdress (KK 1509) and matching collar badges (Peter Nemaric collection).

The KEH Officer's circlet collar badges can also be found in a polished finish where they appear more base brass than bronzed and these are thought to be later War examples when Other Ranks tunics were worn by some Officer's.
