Glengarry badge, Prince of Wales's Own (West Yorkshire Regiment), 1881-1898

White metal and gilt metal badge with a galloping horse surmounted by a scroll bearing the Latin motto, 'Nec Aspera Terrent' (Difficulties be Damned), within a circlet bearing the burnished title, 'Prince of Wales's Own West Yorkshire' and a draped scroll with the Prince of Wales's motto, in German, 'Ich Dien' (I Serve), surmounted by the Prince's feathers and coronet emblem.

The Regiment was originally formed in 1685 by Sir Edward Hales and was numbered as the 14th Regiment of Foot in 1751. The horse featured in the badge is the White Horse of Hanover. County associations with Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire were replaced in 1881 when the Regiment was renamed The Prince of Wales's Own (West Yorkshire Regiment). The Regiment's 2nd Battalion served in South Africa during the Boer War (1899-1902). During World War One (1914-1918) the Regiment raised over 30 battalions.
