Regular Battalion Officers Collar Badge 1882 to 1896


This is the first pattern collar badge to the York and Lancaster Regiment (now incorporating the 65th and 84th Regiments of Foot). The collar badge is a Royal Bengal Tiger and is made of gilt metal with 2 copper loops to the rear.


It is worth noting that the Royal Bengal Tiger is similar to the Long Bengal Tiger with the main difference being that the Long Tiger has a shorter tail looped over the hind quarters only once whereas the Royal Tiger has a second loop in its tail.
