    Default Welch cap badges

    Arrived today, an OSD cap badge for the Welch Regiment and a bullion badge for an officers beret for the Royal Welch Fusiliers. The detail on the dragon on the RWF badge is just superb IMHO.

    I have the OR's version as well, which is bimetal construction and has a slider on the reverse.

    I think mine is all brass with 2 lugs for a split pin, I will try and dig it out unless I've sold it.

    If you still have it, I would be interested in it. Is it spelt Welsh or Welch, if you can remember, as during WWI it was spelt with a S and circa 1920 they reverted to the earlier form with a C, though both regiments always referred to themselves as Welch with a C.

    It was definitely with a C, I remember that as it confused me before I researched it a little.

    Not sure of the date then, either pre or post WWI then and probably the latter. Any chance of you showing it if you have pics or still own it?

    I'll try and find pics on the computer or I might have a photo in a group shot in a thread somewhere. The badge itself is MIA with my unpacked house-move stuff, if indeed I still have it I'll add pics to this thread and drop you a pm
