I think that there is only one version as about that time there was the rise of organizations that did not want to have anything to do with England, The English and Royalty in any format and I have seen other badges that have originated in Quebec that have had the crown removed.....

I haven't seen this one with a crown, very interesting. They must have had at least 2 types of the badge.

Best regards,

I was made aware of my grandfather's participation in the Boer War as a member of the Cold Stream Guard. His service number was 9167 RAMC. Who would I contact to learn more of his envolvment. Is there a biography on his unit of assignment? Was he awarded any medals or citations? Did his unit have a flag or pendant? I would appreciate any information on my family history. I am David Gardner bdgardner71 gmail.com. Is there an actual address I may contact?

Hello David......

Can you please advise your Grandfathers full name as it would have been in the Coldstream Guards..... The number that you gave 9167, is that a number from World War One, the RAMC is Royal Army Medical Corps......

Using the number that you have given I can find a:

9167 Private W. Ford, Coldstrean Guards, DOD, 06/11/00

and

9167 Private W. Banks, Royal Army Medical Corps

Mike

Hi,

Here is an example of a Boer War, South African War Veterans Association, Ladies Badge which was previously up for auction on a popular online auction site. The badge is numbered 1950, then again this could also be the year of issue. This example of a veteran badge for the ladies auxiliary sold for £65 in the past few days.

The design of this badge had me thinking, with the castle and turrets motif, could this badge be more relatable to one of the Regiments which also carry this in their pattern of badge.
