Cap badge, other ranks, 3rd (Prince of Wales's) Dragoon Guards, 1900-1934

Bi-metal badge with Prince of Wales' feathers and coronet above a scroll bearing the unit title, '3rd Dragoon Guards'.

Originally raised in 1685 by Thomas Hickman-Windsor, 1st Earl of Plymouth, to suppress the Duke of Monmouth's revolt against James II, the 3rd Dragoons were nicknamed the 'Old Canaries' after the yellow facings on their uniforms. Their regimental motto was 'Ich Dien', which translates as 'I Serve'.
