    Thank you, Jerry. I guess my chances aren't great but I'll definitely keep an eye out for one. Thanks again for showing it!

    some new additions and a new montage of the Welsh/Mons collars. A white metal on a single lug for the Welch Regiment, which nearly matches a single facing example I already owned and a pair of bulllion collars for the RWF from the late Victorian period.

    A pair of white metal dragon collars in the Mons pattern and of the smaller size typical for the mons pattern dragons and smaller than usual for those for the Welsh, but this type in white metal was worn by the Welsh regiment Volunteer Battalions and also the Glamorgan imperial Yeomanry, so probably for one of them rather than for the Mons as the angle of the tail is more like that for the Welsh, rather than the Mons which is usually nearly vertical.

    With a heads-up from Jerry I was able to pick this up and add it to my dragon collection.
    Thank you, Jerry!

    I love these badges gents. Welsh insignia, in my opinion, is one of the more distinctive and better looking symbols there is, I think the Welsh Dragon looks fantastic!
