During the week before the W & C left Carlisle for Liverpool, and embarkation for South Africa, the Penrith paper, Mid-Cumberland and North Westmorland Herald (10.2.1900) reported the following: -

A small but interesting addition has this week been made to the uniform of the local body of Imperial Yeomanry, and has excited much notice. On the left side of the hat is a "white cockade" - a small sprig of white heather fastened in a small yellow rosette, on which are the figures "24," denoting the company. On the right side of the helmet is a dark red rosette, larger than the yellow one, and on it are the brass numerals "VIII."

Was the cockade an official addition?
