Cap badge, 10th (Prince of Wales's Own Royal) Hussars, 1896 (c)
This regiment was raised in 1715, but it did not become associated with the Prince of Wales until 1783 when King George III renamed it after his eldest son (the future George IV), who became its colonel in 1796.
The prince renamed, re-clothed and re-equipped the regiment as Britain's first ever hussar unit in 1806. It also adopted his heraldic badge, the Prince of Wales's feathers, as its emblem.
