Can anyone with expert knowledge, identify the cap badge on this fine Gent? Only history I have on him is that he joined the Buffs at the start of the Great War, but I am assuming he may have been moved into another regt during its course..... one thing to bear in mind is that his father was a horseman ( Carter/ Team master) in Kent. ... so I’m wondering whether these skills he may have had ( via his father ) may have led him into a cavalry regt, which may explain the bandolier in said photo. Many thanks to anyone that can help.
Agreed, looks like ASC (RASC is just a typo, the "Royal" was adopted after WWI).
I can't make out the detail of the puttees - mounted troops puttees were usually wrapped from the knee down to ankle as opposed to the usual ankle up towards knee.
The ASC badge shown above is the unvoided "economy" version worn during WWI.
Very many thanks to you both, will forward your comments to his Great Nephew whom I’m trying to assist, forgive my ignorance, but was I correct in my assumption that only horseman sported the bandolier?.....
