A well worn cap badge (central wheel on gun casement polished away - my grandad's RTR cap badge was exactly the same!) but unusual as it has a fitted brass backing plate with marketing on one side of the disc, as follows "H.

The design is based upon the seal of the Royal Burgh of Lanark that of a double headed eagle grasping a bell in its right claw with a king 's crown above and a scroll " Lanarkshire Yeomanry " below. In 1953, according to Gaylor, it was decided to discard the scroll. There was no QEII version and in 1956 the Regiment was merged with two other lowland units to form the Queen 's Own Lowland Yeomanry.
