Cymro Posted 5 December , 2018 Share Posted 5 December , 2018 I've had this splendid helmet for a long time in my collection. As a collector of Welsh WW1 pieces its one of my favourite helmets. It has the leek on the right side which ties it down either to the Welsh Guards or Welsh Horse and then an unidentified piece of unit insignia on the left side which I am yet to determine. It doesn't conform to the divisional sign of either the Guards or 74th Division so I am wondering if it could be a company designation. A black triangle on a beige/white background (presumably the background just there to pick out the triangle against the dark helmet). My only other thought was 4th Welsh which had a black triangle as their unit identifier - but that was usually a broader based triangle and they weren't known to wear the leak. Do any of the insignia buffs out there have an idea? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
