Second Pattern Regimental Officer's Headdress Badge - Additional Genuine Example


The second of the two different examples of genuine second pattern Regimental Officer’s headdress badges are shown in Figures 130-132.  The first badge is gilt and is die-cast with a solid, flat back.  It has three loops with one behind the centre of the Prince of Wales’s plumes and the other two east-west at the ends of the Regimental motto scroll.  The loops are also gilt and lack feet.  

Figures 130-132:  A genuine second pattern Officer’s Regimental King’s Colonial headdress badge (KK 1371) in die-cast, gilding metal with three gilding metal loops.  

All the second pattern Regimental badges that have established as genuine Officer’s or Other Rank’s headdress badges over the past ten years have been of the same size, loop positioning and gilt finish as the badges shown in Figures 122-129 and 130-132.
