24th LANCER OFFICERS CAP BADGE
Gilt & Enamel Cap Badge full size.
Their is a lot of debate about these badges. Gaunts produced these badges during wartime [WW2] but they were die cast solid backed. The badge was an officers only and worn on No 1 Dress cap.
This cap badge that`s for sale is one that is a die struck example that is incorrect, and sold as incorrect. Its widely know that Gaunts manufactured them in the 70 s for the collectors market. Would make a fine example in a collection until a genuine example could be found.

ROYAL FUSILIERS OFFICERS BULLION FORAGE CAP BADGE
A fine bullion (City of London Regiment) Victorian post 1881.
60 mm in height good condition for age.
The 2nd battalion was deployed to Upper Canada in October 1866 and helped suppress the Fenian raids and then deployed to India and saw action at the Battle of Kandahar in September 1880 during the Second Anglo-Afghan War.

The regiment was not fundamentally affected by the Cardwell Reforms of the 1870s, which gave it a depot at Hounslow Barracks from 1873, or by the Childers reforms of 1881 as it already possessed two battalions, there was no need for it to amalgamate with another regiment. Under the reforms, the regiment became The Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment) on 1 July 1881 and soon afterwards was assigned its own 1st and 2nd Volunteer Battalions (formerly 10th and 23rd Middlesex Rifle Volunteer Corps respectively). The regiment's 2nd regular battalion took part in the Second Boer War from 1899 to 1902. A 4th regular battalion was formed in February 1900, and received colours from the Prince of Wales (Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment) in July 1902.

In 1908, the Volunteers and Militia were reorganised nationally, with the former becoming the Territorial Force and the latter the Special Reserve - both the Royal Fusiliers' volunteer battalions were assigned to the new London Regiment, leaving the Fusiliers with three Reserve battalions but no Territorial battalions.

WW1 NEWFOUNDLAND REGIMENT OFFICERS SILVER CAP BADGE
A fine very scarce Officers silver Newfoundland Regiment cap badge, with two long loops to reverse. Edinburgh 1914, makers mark Thomas Kerr Ebbutt, approx. 3cm x 4cm.

During the First World War Newfoundland was a largely rural Dominion of the British Empire with a population of 240,000 people, and not yet part of Canada. The outbreak of the First World War in 1914 led the Government of Newfoundland to recruit a force for service with the British Army. Even though the island had not possessed any formal military organization since 1870, enough men soon volunteered that a whole battalion was formed, and later maintained throughout the war. The first recruits in the regiment were nicknamed the "Blue Puttees" due to the unusual colour of the puttees, chosen to give the Newfoundland Regiment a unique look, but quickly abandoned when the 1st five-hundred reached England in October 1914.

Governor Davidson strongly felt that the Newfoundland Regiment deserved special recognition for its actions during the battles of Ypres and Cambrai. His request to the British Government to add the prefix Royal to the regiment's name was granted and George V bestowed the regiment with the prefix in December 1917. This was the only time during the First World War that this honour was given and only the third time in the history of the British Army that it has been given during a time of war.
