It could be 19th (Queen Alexandra's Own Royal) Hussars.

19th Hussars is a Crown over a A with a cross. The above badge is round(ish) in shape with what looks like a scroll underneath.

Oxfordshire Yeomanry?

Looks a bit like Buckinghamshire Yeomanry to me

Royal Buckinghamshire Hussars, to be more-or-less exact.

Off-topic, Alison, nice to see someone else on the Forum with impeccable taste in dogs.

Steven they are the best dogs in the world when they are quiet! Good to know there is another Schnauzer fan here :)

Mrs Broomfield spends her time on some Schnauzer Forum on FB while I potter here.

On-topic, the shoulder title is probably the simple "RBH", which looks like it as far as one can see.

When does this happen? My mother has a Schnauzer. It was named "Fritz", world domination was his game!

Just looked further at the capbadge. The motto "Yeoman of Bucks, strike home", within the capbadge is most striking.

They just do what they are bred for, it's important to know when a bird lands on the garage roof, a leaf blows past the window or if your a schnauzer like my 5 month old puppy it's very important to reply to Charlie Hunnam EVERY time he speaks on Sons of Anarchy :devilgrin:

I couldn't make out the shoulder title!

Less exact, I'm afraid. The Army List has Royal Bucks Hussars.

Allison, Steve,

Since identified this man as husband of my great aunt Arthur Percy Dean his medal record states; Trooper, Private 1746, 28520, Royal Bucks Hussars, 2nd/1st Bucks Battalion, 2/4th Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, Royal Tank Corps. So well done.
