  1. Hello,

    I'd be grateful if anyone could help ID the cap badge (from top left hand corner) that is 2nd row down and 5th in. Have tried everywhere and can't find anything.

    Many thanks


    edit to add, sorry the picture's crap!

  3. Ah yes, I am almost certain its the cap badge of the famous 71st (Jundhi Wallah) Jalfreize Lancers, who were recruited mainly from Poontang.
  4. Have you tried this? Colonel Anil Shorey

    Clue: it's on the website where your photo originated.
  5. Hello, yup, that's where it came from and have also tried to contact him.
    Thanks anyway

    Try pm'ing RayC on here if you don't get any further luck.
  7. Thanks for that Gremlin - it's proving to be a bit of a full time job trying to track down where he served! Three diferent cap badges, bad photo's, etc, etc.
  8. Can't quite make it out from the picture but I'd guess one of the Garwhal Rifles
