Glengarry badge, other ranks, 105th Regiment of Foot (Madras Light Infantry), 1874-1881

Brass badge with the Regiment's number within a bugle horn, surmounted by a crown.

The 105th Regiment of Foot (Madras Light Infantry) had its origins as a regiment raised by the Honourable East India Company in 1766. Following the Indian Mutiny (1857-1859) the Regiment became part of the British Army, renumbered as 105th Regiment of Foot (Madras Light Infantry). Reform of the British Army led to the Regiment being amalgamated with the 51st (2nd Yorkshire, West Riding) or The King's Own Light Infantry Regiment, to form the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry in 1881.
