Hi Guys,
I have a British- Indian badge of Essex Regiment "2/ESSEX NO. 52 SYED  A &. M. WAZAR ALI".
I would like to know when and where was used this badge by the Regiment
Thank you in advance


The second batallion of the Essex infantry regiment is the former 56th (West Essex) regiment. It was formed in 1881. The 2nd Battalion spent the period 1922 to 1935 as part of the British garrison in India. During this time, the 2nd Battalion was stationed at Ambala (1922–1927), Landi Kotal (1927–1929), Nowshera (1929–1931), Nasirabad (1931–1933) and Bombay (1933–1935).

More information.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Thanks peter,
What i was looking for a confirmation now that the badge( names seem to be local) was used  during Landi kotal or Nowshera depolyment. any ref. would be appreciated


I have got the exact information  from Essex regiment museum (UK), this is a  tag which was used for pet as identification mark.
