Could someone identify this badge please?

#1
Been sitting in my collection for some time. I believe it belongs to some species of Hussar, but not sure which?



Can anyone identify it for me?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I took it off a (rather shabby) dark blue beret

So ... QOH (the intertwined QO) absorbed 3rd KO somewhere along the line (= the White Horse")?

7th QOH used to be "QO" in a circlet saying "7th Queen's Own Hussars" under the Crown.

That is the curse of having only one book on Regimental Badges ... dated 1951.
Six years out of date, and look what happens :wink: :lol:

You'll end up like the RAF ... "The Air Defence Squadron [5/19/23/74th"], or the "Last Tank Regiment" [1.2.3.4.5.6.7.8.9.10th]"

Les Dawson was in the BAYS,not the Queers on Horseback,or as some think the 13/18th the Milkmen.Not that he liked the Army, he always refused requests for shows for his old Regt even when in NI.

Would have been funny if he´d joined the ´Black Mafia´though :roll:
