Officers Service Dress Badge 1902 Onwards


Type 42 Tiger and Rose Badge.

This is another example of the Tiger and Rose badge but this is in cast bronze and is an Officer Service Dress badge. The Tiger is set within a scroll and laurel wreath with the words ‘York and Lancaster’. When khaki Service Dress was introduced into the British army in 1902 to replace scarlet uniforms, OSD badges were also introduced as a form of subdued badge to match the subdued uniform.
