22 Ligne anodised bronze button of "Queen's Regiment" pattern. Worn on No2 Dress Cap. All badges worn on Service Dress and Number 2 uniforms are bronzed. This tradition dates from the South African War of 1900- 1902, when badges were darkened in order to achieve greater camouflage. This perpetuates a tradition in that bronzed badges and buttons were previously worn by The Middlesex Regiment and The Royal Hampshire Regiment.
