Hi Dudley, very nice title, I dont think I've seen one before. I used to have the cap badge but lost it along the way.

regards, Iain

Gentlemen,
As far as I am aware, the King Edwards Horse only became the "Kings Overseas Dominion Regiment" in 1910, in 1901, they were part of the County of London yeomanry.
Kind regards Frank

Hi Frank,

you are actually right it was the 4th County of London Imperial Yeomanry and didnt actually serve in the ABW; it only became the KEH, KODR in 1910, on the death of KE VII.

kind regards, Iain

Thanks for the info gents. One is always learning! Did KEH have a specific hat badge for the ABW?

Kind regards

Dudley
