    1. Thank you Joanna the literal translation is "Shame be to him who thinks evil of it" or more strictly translated word for word its "Let he who thinks ill there be shamed"

      The first translation is the motto of a lot of Regiments.

  2. Shame on him who thinks evil (of it)? Not at all sure about the significance of Queens, tennis?

  6. It is a famous motto, no, that's not the word, or is it? Too late at night, I am brain dead! Great pic.

  8. Thanks for your lovely comments, as everyone has asked similar questions I'll answer here with a full explanation rather than individually.

    It is the cap badge of The Queens Regiment which is no more. In 1992 The Queens were amalgamated with Royal Hampshire Regiment to form the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, as a result the Cap Badge of the Queens Regiment became the Cap Badge of the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment with the word Queens on the banner replaced by the words Princess of Wales's, and the Royal Hampshire rose set below the Dragon.

    2. I was in Queens Regt (TA) then left to join Surrey Army Cadets who were Queens also until we were re-badged to PWRR. I volunteered for nearly 17 years until it finally got to much with my arthritis a couple of years ago. In fact I think I may have posted a cross stitch I did of the PWRR cap badge soon after I started blogging, will go and have a look now lol
