Glengarry badge, other ranks, 65th (2nd Yorkshire, North Riding) Regiment of Foot, 1874 (c)
Brass badge with the regimental number, '65', surmounted by a tiger, within a garter bearing the unit title, 'Second Yorkshire North Riding', surmounted by a crown.
Raised as an independent unit in 1758, the 65th had several nicknames including 'the Royal Tigers', after the tiger on its badge which was awarded in 1823 following its long period of Indian service, and the 'Hickety Pips', said to have originated from its service in New Zealand where the Maoris' mispronounced the '65th'.
