Cap badge, other ranks, Prince of Wales's (North Staffordshire Regiment), 1900 (c)
Staffordshire knot above scroll with regimental title, 'North Stafford', surmounted by the Prince of Wales's feathers emerging from a coronet above a scroll with the motto, 'Ich Dien'.
The Regiment was formed during the 1881 Army reforms by merging the 64th Foot and 98th Foot, inheriting the 64th's association with Staffordshire and becoming the county regiment for the north of that county. The motto on the badge, 'Ich Dien', means 'I Serve' and was inherited from the 98th Foot.
