WW1 South Staffordshire Regiment Bronze OSD Cap / Collar Badge

WW1 South Staffordshire Regiment Bronze OSD Cap / Collar Badge

Kings crown officer's die cast bronze service dress cap / collar badge with two original loops to the reverse. In very good condition with only minor wear to bronze finish. The large collar was discarded by the 1st Battalion in favour of the simple knot badge by 1918 although the 2nd Battalion persisted with the large collar as depicted here for a few more years.

Early Imperial Crown Matched Brass Collar Badge Universal Pattern as worn by many Regiments of Foot, 1872 - 1878 only

Early Imperial Crown Matched Brass Collar Badge Universal Pattern as worn by many Regiments of Foot, 1872 - 1878 only

Scarce brass collar badge with an original single loop to reverse, as issued. In very good condition with sharp detail.

Now, to dispel a myth, these may well have been worn by the 11th ( Devonshire Regiment), but they were generic issue to most regiments without a special device, such as fusilier regiments which were authorised to wear grenades, or light infantry regiments who were authorised to wear bugles, or other special devices approved at the time. There were other special devices, such as the 1st Regiment ( Royal Scots) who were authorised in 1872 to wear a collar badge in the form of a thistle.

In an attempt to list the units who may have worn this generic pattern of collars in the early 1870s (typically 1872 - 1878), I have compiled the following list from Churchill:

2nd ( Queens )
3rd ( Buffs )
11th (North Devon )
12th ( East Suffolk )
14th ( West Yorkshire )
19th (Green Howards ), replaced in 1875 with a different pattern crown (Churchill 559)
29th ( Worcestershire )
35th ( Royal Sussex )
39th (Dorsetshire )
42nd ( Black Watch )
44th ( East Essex )
45th ( Sherwood Foresters )
48th ( Northamptonshire )
53rd ( King's Shropshire Light Infantry )
62nd ( Wiltshire )
64th ( North Staffordshire )
83rd ( County of Dublin / RIR / RUR )
