WW1 LOYAL SUFFOLK HUSSARS INDIAN MADE COLLAR BADGES
A matching pair of Indian made cast brass collar badges, with normal Indian lugs to reverse.

Mobilisation in August 1914, saw the Regiment at Martlesham near Ipswich. The following September, the Regiment received orders to sail for Gallipoli, however they would be going without their horses. On 11th October 1915, they landed at Walkers Pier, Gallipoli with their comrades, the Norfolk Yeomanry. It was a semi-static life for the first month with ranks being seriously depleted by sickness and dysentery. The great blizzard of November did nothing to add to the morale of the men with frostbite adding to number of the men becoming ill.
Withdrawal from the peninsular began in December and, after a short stay at Mudros, the Regiment went to Egypt, where it was officially declared as 'dismounted'. After training as infantry, they took over trenches between El Shatt and El Ferdan. Early 1917, saw an official name change for the Regiment. As part of the 74th (Yeomanry) Division, they became the 15th (Yeomanry) Battalion, The Suffolk Regiment. They would however fiercely hang onto their original badges and only those who joined them in France wore the standard cap badge of the Suffolk Regiment.
