I've fixed that for you.vandyke said:If you are going to be pedantic and correct my faults, at least get your facts rightFat_Cav said:Guys, sorry to get pedantic but. . .2/51 said:Not quite....the crown and thistle are missing..and the Highlanders badge was stabrite, not white metal. (I was one )vandyke said:QOH used the same cap badge as did the highlanders right up till amalgamation into RRS (with the additional crown that may very well be missing)2/51 said:The "Yellow Brooch" is Scots Guards...the other Seaforths..who were amalgamated in 1961 and the badge in that form was no longer used.
The only "metal" badge used by the highlanders was a 3D one..which does not have the stags head atached to the motto scroll as its a 3 piece badge.
Loking at that one, its one of the earlier Seaforths ones as the fixings are not in place for the Crown and thistle.
QOH - Queens Own Hussars (Fine Senior light Cavalry Regiment of the British Army, formed 1685)
QOHldrs- The Queen's Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons), Traditional Scottish Regiment of foot, formed 1961. Unless you include their original two formation Regiments, them it's a long long time ago. . even before Bruce Forsyth was born
2/51 my apologies you are correct, I Forgot all ranks of the Highlanders adopted the 3 piece 3D badge.
Not factually incorrect , more a mis-interpretation of how you read it.
The QOH was formed (in it's true sense) in 1958, although it's origins are that it was formed many centuries ago as The Queen Consortâs Regiment of Dragoons. Although if you ask anyone in the now, QRH, they'll tell you it was formed in 1685, as was the QRIH originating Regiment The Princess Anne of Denmark's Regiment of Dragoons. therefore the QRH (QRIH & QOH) is 324 yrs old.
