Hi all.

Long time no see. Found a few badges and a shoulder title relating to the Umvoti Mounted Rifles today. 

A few mysteries though, at least for me.

Most of the cap badges I see don't contain the motto but the one I found contains the motto 'Toujours Pret' plus 'UMR' above that. The shoulder title is interesting as it does look hand made with the maker's mark 'A Huber Greytown' on the back. 

Any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thought I would update this post. 

As far as I've been told, the cap badge relates to the post Boer War era up to World War One and the UMR title is a Boer War era slouch cap badge.

I'm still learning so if any information can be added, please feel free.
