Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (RNF) Mess Waiters Facing Collar Badges

Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (RNF) Mess Waiters Facing Collar Badges

A scarce pair of facing upright bi-metal collar badges, but not matching, especially in respect of the fixings. Worn on the collars of No 2 Dress and the Mess Waiters' livery jacket with the high collar. Denis Wood is of the opinion that these were unofficial and paid for by the regiment to bling up their mess waiters. Circa 1960s. As there were only 6 - 8 mess orderlies these are scarce.

WW1 Brass Universal Pattern Pioneer Battalion Other Ranks Collar Badge, various units

WW1 Brass Universal Pattern Pioneer Battalion Other Ranks Collar Badge, various units

A brass collar badge, with 4 lugs to the reverse. Some twisting to the pick axe and service wear to the lugs.

Introduced by sealed pattern in 1915, and marked obsolete in 1921. Worn in gilding metal (brass) for Other Ranks and OSD bronze finish for Officers. Some pioneer battalions differentiated themselves from other pioneer battalions in the same regiment by wearing either the pick axe facing inwards or outwards from the collar. Colin Churchill's book on the subject of infantry collar badges illustrates the universal pattern pioneer collars as items 147 and 148 in the section concerning the Northumberland Fusiliers. As a result most people associate this pattern with the NF pioneer service battalions the 14th, 17th ( NER ), 18th and 19th. The 7th Battalion NF (TF) at sometime served as pioneers so they would also have worn them. Other units which Colin Churchill lists as having worn them are:

2/4th Somerset Light infantry (TF)
21st ( Wool Textile Pioneers ) (S) Bn The West Yorkshire Regiment
6th East Yorkshire Regiment (TF)
12th (Teeside Pioneers) (S) Bn The Green Howards
12th (Pioneers) (S) Bn The Cheshire Regiment
The Denbighshire Battalion, The Royal Welsh Fusiliers (TF) (Officers only worn with a 'T' below - item 654)
5th & 6th (S) Bns The South Wales Borderers
13th ( Forest of Dean ) (S) Bn, The Gloucestershire Regiment
14th (Seven Valley Pioneers ) (S) Bn, The Worcestershire Regiment
17th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, the Worcestershire Regiment
11th ( St Helen's Pioneers ) The South Lancashire Regiment
8th (S) Bn, the Welsh Regiment
19th ( Glamorgan ) (S) Bn, the Welsh Regiment
8th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, the Oxs & Bucks LI
12th ( Pioneers) (S) Bn, the Sherwood Foresters ( Notts & Derby)
1/5th Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry ( TF)
10th ( Cornwall Pioneers ) (S) Bn, Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry
9th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, The Border Regiment
8th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, The Royal Sussex Regiment
11th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, The Hampshire Regiment
5th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, The Northamptonshire Regiment

17th/19th/26th (S) Bns of the Middlesex Regiment; the 1st/2nd and 3rd Public Works Pioneers respectively
24th ( Oldham ) (S) Bn (Pioneers) The Manchester Regiment
9th (S) Bn (Pioneers) the North Staffordshire Regiment
7th (Pioneer) Bn, The York & Lancaster Regiment
11th (Pioneers) (S) Bn, The Durham Light Infantry
22nd Battalion (3rd County Pioneers) (S) Bn, DLI
16th ( 2nd Glasgow ) (S) Bn (Pioneers), Highland Light Infantry ( HLI )
9th (S) Bn (Pioneers) The Seaforth Highlanders
9th (S) Bn (Pioneers) The Gordon Highlanders
16th ( 2nd County Down ) (S) Bn (Pioneers), the Royal Ulster Rifles

My thanks to Colin Churchill for his research in this respect. Some 40 battalions may have worn these but still quite hard to find.

South Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales's Volunteers) Officers Bullion Collar Badge

South Lancashire Regiment (Prince of Wales's Volunteers) Officers Bullion Collar Badge

Has some wear to it and a bit of damage to top left of tallest plume, but a well made padded item with a combination of sequins and bullion wire. Really would have been a bobby dazzler in its day. Blue cloth ground behind the 'ich dien' is evident but also now a bit grubby. This looks like an early one. The pattern for this was sealed in 1881.
