Corps of Drums Society

Member Request regarding Drum Carriage and Music Card Case Badges.

This member request comes from Robin Ridewood.

Robin is a collector of British Army badges worn on drum slings and/or music card cases. For example, the Queen’s Regiment used to have a badge on the drum sling and the Essex Regiment had a 3″ brass version of the Salamanca Eagle which was worn on both pouches and slings by Bandsmen and Drummers respectively.

If anyone has any information to help Robin in his quest to find out more could you please e mail me at so I can put you in touch?

Many thanks.

Hon Secretary.
