||Dress regulations for the
original Corps allowed for 'regimental badges'. The badge shown is
known to have been worn prior to WW1.
It is not known whether this badge was
officially approved, though as it featured a Crown & garter, it
probably had approval but not public funding.
The blue colour is derived from the
authorised facings for the Corps uniforms. Note the motto, which
is still used by the Corps today.
