Remembered Today:



Recommended Posts

I would welcome Pals observations on these two badges:

Badge 1.

This a badge of the Welsh Brigade, made up of the 1st and 2nd battalions of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, the South Wales Borderers and the Welch Regiment, which existed between 1949 and 1968. It is similar to the badge of the Wessex Brigade, which existed for the same period. At either end of the scroll it has the words 'Ich' and 'Dien'.

The matters which are puzzling relate to Badge 2. Unfortuately I only have a poor photograph of this, but I am struck by the similarity of the two badges. Were they perhaps designed by the same person, or do the three upright feathers have some military significance in armorial matters, which would connect the two regiments.

Thank you

Badge 2

This is the badge of the 2nd Gurkha Rifles

The 2nd King Edward VII's Ghurka Rifles of 1906 was Titled "The Prince Of Wales's Own Ghurkas" Regiment in 1876 & wore this Badge,The Later Badge Worn by the "Welsh Brigade" I presume is a utilisation of a Design,already "sealed" for use in a "New" Regiment,again having direct connection with HRH the P of W;
