Welsh Guards sergeantís cap
The Welsh Guards were formed during WWI on the suggestion of Lord Kitchener, and the warrant for their creation was signed by George V on February 26 1915. Men transferred to the new regiment from other guards and line regiments, primarily the Grenadier Guards, who posted five officers and 634 enlisted men. The striking feature of this cap is the rakish angle of the visoróa typical alteration found on NCOís caps in general, and for those of the Household Guards units in particular. My sincere thanks to Stuart in London, who keeps finding interesting things for me.
