Hi,
I am interested to know about pips of foot guards officers. After 1880, when did bath star change to corresponding regimental stars like garter star, shamrock star etc.
Cheers
Shams

Hi Mervyn,

After a long time, I hear from you. I am good. How about you?
I got some images in internet after watching the movie "My boy Jack" which made me confused. These images were during or after Great war.
Even I checked Dress regulations 1900, 1904, 1911, 1928. In DR 1928, it is mentioned about the special badges for Foot Guards. So that I asked this question.

Sham  -  go to page 6  -  there is an interesting article on the Grenadier Guards by Leigh Kitchen.  This may help with your dates.   Mervyn

Finally I got my answer. In the year 1919, Bath stars were changed to current star pattern. It war confirmed by Assistant Curator of Foot Guards Regimental museum.
