Rare Victorian Hong Kong Regiment Bi Metal Shoulder Title

A rare bi - metal shoulder title, with the letters in brass"HKR" on a crescent shaped white metal backing. Circa 4.9cm wide. Worn only from 1892-1902.

The regiment was made up of Indian Punjabi Moslem soldiers with British officers and formed in 1982 as par of hte garrison of Hong Kong. It was listed as a British Army rather than Indian Army formation and had no formal ties with the latter. Members of the regiment were involved in quelling the Boxer Rebellion of 1900. The success of the regiment led to jealousy on the part of the Indian Military and sadly the regiment was disbanded in 1902 on the promise that the Indian Army would make units available to garrison the Far East.
