The IY badge with the rosette is the generic badge worn by all IY units on their slouch hats unless they had claim to another one.

IY units were formed from volunteers for the duration or from territorial units that were not going to be deployed in their entirety, and many did not have the finances to commission a specific badge for themselves.

The IY companies were all numbered and there were generally four in a battalion. The 25th Coy were the West Somerset Coy and were in the 7th Bn under command of Colonel Helyar. More often than not the IY wore brass IY titles on their collars.

Would it be possible to post a scan of the medical staff rosette please? Have attached a scan of the badge I have but have no idea of the colour of the rosette. Many thanks.

Good Morning Dudley

Your wish is my comma...... I think I will leave it there......

The badge is a later badge 1902 but is still applicable.....
