Indian Army - 7th Duke of Connaughts Own Rajputs Regiment of Bengal Infantry, Victorian Officers Pagri Badge, 1893 - 1901

Indian Army - 7th Duke of Connaughts Own Rajputs Regiment of Bengal Infantry, Victorian Officers Pagri Badge, 1893 - 1901

Die struck in bronze, British made and in in very good condition with stout pin and clasp undamaged and intact. Circa 58mm tall. In super condition.

The monogram ('A', 'W', 'P' and a reversed 'P' - probably for Prince Arthur William Patrick), surmounted by a royal crest with an Imperial Crown, with a wreath and a scroll bearing the unit title, 'Duke of Connaught's Own', and the unit number, in Roman numerals, 'VII'.

The 7th Bengal Native Infantry was originally raised as the 1st Battalion, 24th Native Infantry in 1804. In 1824 it became the 69th Regiment of Bengal Native Infantry and the 47th Regiment of Bengal Native Infantry in 1828. The regiment gained four battle honours during the 1st Sikh War (1845-1846). The unit served in China in 1858-1859 and, renamed the 7th Bengal Native Infantry in 1861, in Egypt in 1882.

In 1883 the regiment became the 7th (Duke of Connaught's) Own Bengal Native Infantry and it was renamed the 7th (Duke of Connaught's Own Rajputs) Regiment of Bengal Infantry in 1893. The unit participated in the 3rd China War (Boxer Rebellion) in 1900. During World War One the regiment was deployed to Mesopotamia in 1914. As part of the garrison of Kut the men of the regiment, as prisoners of war, suffered greatly after the town fell to the Turks in 1916.

With the reorganisation of the Indian Army in 1922 the regiment formed the 3rd Battalion of the new 7th Rajput Regiment, part of an amalgamation with several other units. Partition in 1947 resulted in the regiment becoming part of the Indian Army.

1st Chin Rifles (Burma) Silver Plated Cap Badge

1st Chin Rifles (Burma) Silver Plated Cap Badge

A shield with a stung bugle and display of arms above a scoll "1st Chin Rifles". With two original loops to the reverse. Brass silver plated with some wear to the silver finish, as often found, otherwise in very good condition. Circa 4.5cm tall. Scarce.

The 1st Chin Rifles was formally raised as part of the interim or new Burma Army at Falam on 1st April 1945 under the command of the former Chin Levies commander, Lt. Colonel Oatts. Many of the Chin Levies were former members of the Burma Rifles who had been allowed to return home after the British retreat to India in 1942. These men, together with new recruits served with the Levies from 1942 onwards. They gave invaluable and courageous service throughout the Chin Hills, inflicting many casualties on the Japanese. Post Burma's independence in 1948 the 1st Chin Rifles continued to be involved in combating Communist and Karen and Kachin insurgencies into the 1960s. Some reorganisation of the Burma Army took place during this period and included the dismissal or transfer of senior Chin officers who were replaced by Burman officers. In the late 1980s, further reorganisation did away with battalions organised and titled along ethnic lines. In their place came integrated units identified by number. It is believed that around1988 the 1st Chin Rifles became No. 307 Light Infantry Battalion.
