Sepoy Posted 5 October , 2013 Share Posted 5 October , 2013 In a recent badge related topic, it appears that a Edward VII (1902 - 1910) pattern Royal Engineers cap badge was being worn by a Soldier during the Great War. Scanning through Great War Postcards/Photographs "out of period" cap badges can be seen being worn from time to time. There could be a number of reasons for this ranging from "old stores" being issued to meet demand, to NCOs wearing earlier pattern cap badges to mark the out from the new recruits. I have heard the argument that this would have not been allowed by the RSM, but they probably had more important things to worry about. Accordingly, I have attached a few clear examples and would encourage other forum members to post similar photos.
