My father joined the Essex regiment and when it became 153 RAC I have read that they were allowed to keep their original cap badges. When 153 was disbanded he went to 147 (the Hampshires) who had also been told that they could keep their old cap badges. When 147 was disbanded he went to 107 who had also been told the same. My question is when he went to 147 would he have had to get rid of his Essex badge and again when he went to 107? Did all members of the regiment have to have the same badge or were they continually being issued new ones?
