... A far better badge, firmly British ands arguably a better title. The Queen's Rangers has a more British ring to it.
Just add "park". It's got a crown and all

There's your cap badge and uniform sorted.


According to Forces.net (BFBS) the name "Rangers" is supposed to hark back to the Queen's Rangers.
Ranger Regiment: What we know about the Army's new elite unit



The Queen's York Rangers in Canada trace their history back to the Queen's Rangers as well.

I'm not an expert in heraldry, but what the new UK cap badge reminds me of is something artistically inspired by Judge Dredd comics. Something a bit more traditionally inspired might sit better with well, traditionalists.
Is that the Queen's Islamic Rangers ?
Just wondering with all the crescent moons and paradisic coloured clothes.

The army was obviously promoting inclusivity and diversity in the 18th century well before it became fashionable elsewhere, something that should have been obvious from the fact that senior officers were cutting about wearing wigs and frilly lace.

They still do.
