    Greetings.
    I am looking for pictures / images of the shoulder titles and helmet flashes worn by the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons during the Boer War whilst in karki service dress.

    Thanks in advance

    Found this on 6DG so possibly substitute the 6 for 5

    Of course there is possibility is they never wore them in field

    What figure are you working on?

    The helmet flashes were only a short lived idea. When they were found to provide a useful aiming point for Boer snipers, they fell rapidly into disuse!(y)

    Hi Nap.

    Thanks for that. As you know 6th Inniskilling Dragoons are different to the 6th Dragoon Guards, so going buy the above it maybe "6D". I have found the following but not sure if they relate to the 6th Inniskilling Dragoons or the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers
    [IMG] Note one reads Inniskillings the other Inniskilling.
    I have also found these that I believe to be RIF

    Note above reads Inniskilling.

    So would you think it was safe to go with "INNISKILLINGS" Mick

    Hi Steve.
    Thanks for that. That explains this photo showing the helmet with a cover on it with no flashes.
