    The previous badge was known as the "Tram Conductors badge". For the sake of reference, I have now shown the later cap badge worn from 1923 onwards. In fact, two battl's, the 7th Territorial Battalion and the 24th Service Battl did wear a fleur-de-lys badge, but of more ornate design in WW1.


    In 1923 the Regiment adopted a plain brass fleur-de-lys in place of the City coat of Arms badge. The fleur-de-lys commemorates service in the French island of Martinique by the old 63rd of foot over a hundred years before. After WW2, the brass version of the badge gave way to a white metal version.

    Cheers, Ade.
