    Hi Mario, it is the cap badge of the South Wales Borders. The cap fitting is broken off the back.

    The design shows the battle honours gained in the 19th century.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I knew you would be able to find out lots of info, once you knew the Regiment. They are vey famous.

    The broken cap fitting will hurt the value very badly. Here in the UK it would only now be worth about Ł5 or 5 Euros maximum.

    Cheers, Ade.
