Sweetheart Badges - Regimental


King’s Colonials sweetheart badges are commonly brooched versions of their collar badges.   The first example of these is shown in Figures 331 and 332 which is a brooched (north-south) version of a die-struck, second pattern Regimental collar badge (as per Figure 203).

Another type of sweetheart badge is in the form of a cravat pin (Figure 333) similarly fashioned from a flat-backed, die-cast, Officer’s second pattern Regimental collar badge (Figure 201).  This is the second of these cravat pins that I have seen and this may not be surprising as cravat pins were popular items of an Edwardian gentleman’s attire.
