The Breamish Valley War Memorial Project Steering Group would like to thank Mr Dorrell from the Worcestershire Militaria Museum for his help in sourcing the above Queen’s Own Worcestershire Hussars regimental badge. Mr Dorrell kindly photographed a cap badge from the museum’s collection and then edited it to appear neatly on the white background. His support, and that of the Worcestershire Militaria Museum, is much appreciated.
