Other Ranks' Headdress Badges


The Other Ranks version of the 2nd King Edward's Horse headdress badge (KK 1134) is die-struck in gilding metal with a slider.  The slider is crimped from the original manufacturing process and is attached behind the base of the King's Crown.  An example of this badge is shown in Figures 427-428.
