Other ranks' cap badge, Queen's Own Hussars, 1960 (c)
This regiment was formed at Tidworth in November 1958 by amalgamating the 3rd Hussars and the 7th Hussars, which had both existed as independent regiments since the 1680s. The badge depicts the white horse of Hanover, which had been granted to the 3rd Hussars by George I in 1715.
