Sergeant's and Warrant Officer's Mess Jackets

Mess jackets worn by non-commissioned officers for dining in the sergeant's mess on special occasions. The Prince of Wales feathers badge is the NCO's arm badge of the Royal Hussars although the jacket is exactly similar to the old 11th Hussars mess jacket. Sergeants wear the badge above the stripes while warrant officers wear them above the cuff. The warrant officer is the Bandmaster and wears a band badge and WO1 badge all on the right sleeve. They are all embroidered badges.
