Remembered Today:

Infantry Pioneers Batts


Recommended Posts


After a bit of help please.

Did the Pioneers Battalions of an Infantry Regiment have any distinguishing insignia/collar badges?

Interested in 12th KOYLI.

Brass crossed Rifle and Pick were worn on the collars for other ranks and for officers on the tunic lapels below the regimental collar dogs. Hope this helps.

The 12th Bn KOYLI do have a book 'A Brief History of the 12th Bn KOYLI (Pioneers) "The Miners' Battalion" By Capt R. Ede England, No publishing date, around 1920s-30s?.

Hello Ady,

There is a photo of a 12th KOYLI soldier showing his collar dogs on a current topic, posted by carrie-ann smith.
