Royal Artillery Regiment Cap Badge - Early 20th Century. Copper alloy badge displaying a gun carriage between two banners with the motto "UBIQUE" (Everywhere) above and "QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT" (Where Right and Glory Lead) below. The wheel of the canon is separate from the badge, held in place by a small rivet which allows the wheel to turn freely. Obviously it is uncertain as to when this badge was lost and by whom. The uniforms of army regiments always remained property of the state, therefore an officer would have to purchase this himself and probably why only the parts, i.e. buttons, badges and insignia are often to be found, they soon became popular souvenirs after the war, especially by youngsters.

A cast copper alloy shoulder title of the 'Royal Field Artillery'. The fixing lugs on the back are missing. On 1 July 1899, the Royal Artillery was divided into three groups: the Royal Horse Artillery and Royal Field Artillery comprised one group, while the coastal defence, mountain, siege and heavy batteries were split off into another group named the Royal Garrison Artillery. The third group continued to be titled simply Royal Artillery, and was responsible for ammunition storage and supply. Which section a gunner belonged to was indicated by the shoulder titles (R.A., R.F.A., R.H.A., or R.G.A.). The RFA and RHA also dressed as mounted men, whereas the RGA dressed like foot soldiers. These three sections effectively functioned as separate corps. This arrangement lasted until 1924, when the three were amalgamated once more to became one Regiment.
