Hi Mike,

Thanks for that, really very interesting indeed. I don't suppose you have an example of that rare badge to share? Or if not perhaps a picture?

Cheerio,

Roy

Collecting/wanted ABW insignia if anyone has some spares?

Hi Roy.......

I have seen a couple of pairs at the Regimental Museum and read about their manufacture in the Regimental Routine Orders but don't have a pair myself......

Here is a photo of a couple of badges that they had made in the UK on the way home.......

Hi Mike,

Thank you again for that. I can see what you mean, as the design is really quite different.

Do you have any views on my badge ?

As mentioned I'm leaning towards Steinaecker's Horse but I'm open to other suggestions.

Cheerio,

Roy

Thanks for that Mike,

Until any further details come to light I will tentatively put this down as (unofficial/locally made) Steinaecker's Horse.

And just for further interest, here are a couple of larger/improved photographs I took earlier today.

Cheerio,

Roy
