Hello

Could someone please help out with the identification of this young second-lieutenant's cap badge and collar dogs please ?

Thank you

He looks to be a 2/Lt in the Royal Hampshires.

Pedantically, Hampshire Regiment (the "Royal" bit didn't arrive until 1946 or thereabouts).

Thanks Broomers, as someone who was nearly Commisioned into the Royal Hampshires I only knew them as that. I bow to your superior knowledge.

A pleasure :lol:

Actually, it's odd that the officers' badge had a crown over the rose, which the o.r. badge didn't acquire until 1946.

Discrimination.

If I remember correctly one badge came from the 37th Foot (worn by the Offrs and linked with the North Hants Militia badge design) and the other from the 67th Foot (with the 'Tiger' honour and worn by the ORs), thus marking the 1881 'joining' together of the South and North Hampshire county associations that were set up in 1782 during the first attempt to prescribe territorial affiliations.
