Thank you for showing the BMR badges. The pic below was included in my post on the Composite Regiment of the Mounted Brigade during the Relief of Ladysmith.

Regards
Brett

Greetings Dudley,
Or perhaps I should address you as Sir, British made, Victorian BMR badges, plates, accoutrements and furniture does not turn up very often, so I think you are quite lucky, I've always found this period, as far as the Natal Volunteers are concerned, to be the most interesting, after the war, the rot set in. :(
I really don't think most people realise just how rare these things actually are.
Kind regards Frank

Hi Dudley,

very nice; I consider myself lucky enough to have the KC version, never mind the QVC version or the smasher hat badge.

kind regards, Iain
