The early version used by the RWF is more like a griffin than those used by the Welsh, but it is still a dragon.
The two pairs of collars at lower left are the early type, without the loop in the tail, which is a feature more commonly seen on English dragons, such as that used by the Buffs. The two at top left are cap badges (the one is still on its original circa 1937 coloured FS cap), the pair at top right are for the blue patrol jacket. The bottom row are for the officers SD tunic, early type are shown by the two pairs to the left and the later type on the right. It is not known when the change from the early type to the later type took place, but probably circa 1920 when the regiment changed the spelling of its name from that using a S to the preferred regimental version using a C. The same change took place for the Welch regiment at the same time.
