The Machine Gun Corps (MGC) was a corps of the British Army, formed in October 1915 in response to the need for more effective use of machine guns on the Western Front in the First World War. The Heavy Branch of the MGC was the first to use tanks in combat and was subsequently turned into the Tank Corps, later called the Royal Tank Regiment. The MGC remained in existence after the war until it was disbanded in 1922.

RARE SOLID SILVER BACKWARDS FACING ROYAL TANK CORPS / REGIMENT OFFICERS 1924 BERET BADGE

A very fine rare short lived solid silver example. IM Issac Menheim maker 925 import silver. Crowned laurel sprays bearing scroll inscribed 'Fear Naught' across the lower portion. To the centre, a silver tank pointing to the reverse. VGC. Reference KK 1922, https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30103383

Granted the “Royal” prefix in 1923, following which the top scroll was removed and the lower scroll carried the Corps motto, “Fear Naught”. The tank was now depicted side-on as opposed to three-quarters front. This design was sealed in October 1924. Unfortunately, in March 1924 King George V had approved the black beret as the headdress for the Tank Corps and when worn in the beret the tank was facing to the rear, anathema in the iconography of military badges. A new version was rapidly adopted later that year, with the tank facing left, to the wearer’s right, so facing forward when worn in the beret.
